Queer Avengers look beyond marriage

The site, beyondmarriage.org.nz tells stories of relationships, and family structures, excluded or oppressed by marriage law, including polyamory and whangai adoption.

It’s also underlining the continuing obstacles our community faces, including bullying, suicide and homelessness among LGBT youth, inadequate access to quality healthcare for trans people and common intimidation and violence in the streets.
