Clayton Cubitt (friend of one of the editors of BoingBoing) has recently visited NZ. He’s posted some fantastic visual material to his tumblr site including the video below – a short interview with Vic Taurewa Biddle.

More of Clayton’s Kiwi content here but (warning) it’s not a permalink so you might have to page back and forward to find it in future.

    Awesome vid. These sort of issues need way more coverage in NZ’s mainstream media. The amount of bigotry and misconception about queer people in NZ culture (as evidenced in the kiwiblog comments section) is shocking. I have queer friends that are routinely harassed (usually by young men) when they walk down the street with their partner(s). NZ has a long, long way to go.

    Damnit a_y_b I’d forgotten how much I missed hearing Maori spoken and all that that evokes. Now I have to pretend to the rest of the office that sand suddenly blew out of the air conditioning and right into my eyes 😛

    Thanks.
