Shift Hui 2018 – 20 to 23 April 2018 – Porirua

Shift is a hui (gathering) for young people of minority sexualities, genders and sex characteristics run by InsideOUT! Join them for 4 days and 3 nights of making connections, learning about different issues facing the rainbow community, taking part in workshops and activities (talent show!) and gaining new skills and knowledge to help you set up and/or sustain a queer straight alliance/diversity group in your school or take other actions to make your school or community a safer place. We want to see a shift in the dominant culture and see Aotearoa New Zealand as a safe place for everyone, regardless of their sex, sexuality or gender.
