Hohou te Rongo Kahukura - Outing Violence

September 17, 2015 at 5:34 PM

Kia ora Rainbow whanau,

I'm writing about a new project which I think you'll be interested in, and which I've already discussed with many of you.

Hohou te Rongo Kahukura - Outing Violence is dedicated to building rainbow communities free of partner and sexual violence.  We have - with the help of a fabulous advisory group - created a website and survey which we launched last week.

The survey is for anyone identifying as any part of the Rainbow community over the age of 16 living in New Zealand.  You do not need to have experienced violence to take part.  It asks questions about experiences in relationships, and experiences of help-seeking if partner or sexual violence was experienced.  It is confidential, anonymous and we will collate the results to improve responses to partner and sexual violence in our communities.

The website has information targeted for survivors, people concerned about friends using or experiencing violence, partner and sexual violence information, and organisations which may be able to help.  There's also information about consent, and descriptions of homophobia, biphobia and transphobia and "isms" which set the context for partner and sexual violence.

The website is

GayNZ wrote an article about this last week which is here

I would be very grateful if you could share this resource through your networks and Facebook pages and highlight the survey for rainbow identified people to complete.  There will also be community hui happening in October around the country which Elizabeth Kerekere and I will be facilitating - I will send through details of these closer to the time.

Queer solidarity (and apologies for cross-posting :-)
