how do we create space for rainbow people in a world that operates on the assumption that we’re straight and cis until we say we’re not? AND, how do we make sure that our rainbow spaces are inclusive of all people – that we’re not perpetuating racism, ableism, misogyny, or even policing people’s sexualities and genders?
This month we chat to Julie, who runs a group called Drumbeat – a group for parents, caregivers and people who care for young people who are gender questioning.
It’s attitude month on DPSN, and we chatted to Georgia from ITANZ and Intersex Youth Aotearoa, about changing attitudes towards intersex people
Auckland Council are trying to connect the rainbow dots – with 3 questions…
This month’s DPSN theme is Space, and who better to talk about space than Dr. JJ Eldridge – Astrophysicist and Non-binary person studying exploding binary stars in NZ.
They chat with us about exploding binary start, and exploding the myth of the gender binary. They explore how science, and the study of space, can create more space for gender and sex diversity and fluidity.
When I was a kid, there were girls and boys, men and women. My sister was a bit of a tomboy (hardly surprising perhaps, given she had two older brothers).

Today we are very excited to launch our newest video “Who We Are” by Philip Patston
