Beyond Marriage

Originally printed on GayNZ.

The Queer Avengers have launched a new website highlighting the limitations of marriage and adoption law, and while supporting the call for marriage equality, it also underlines that it’s not the end of the line for LGBT struggles.

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.
