About the event
This year the Auckland Heritage Festival (23 September – 8 October) is themed Peace, Love and Protest to commemorate 50yrs since the first anti-nuclear protests in Aotearoa. This year’s festival looks to explore events that defined and shaped our national identity and how we came together during significant times of joy and celebration.
As part of the festival, the museum will be hosting a talk at the Te Atatū Peninsula Community Centre and Library that explores legislative changes and law reform in Aotearoa that changed the lives of Rainbow Communities and what was happening overseas that impacted here.
The talk will include topic’s such as Homosexual Law Reform - what failed in '74 and why it passed in 1986; the Human Rights Amendment Act 1992, Marital Property Reform 1998, and later legislation such as the Civil Union Bill 2004, Relationship (Statutory References) Act 2005 and Marriage Equality Bill 2012.
