Covid-19 Update

Covid-19 Update: We're open for a range of services during the Level 4 lockdown. Use the Ask for an Appointment to get a phone appointment with us during this time. 

We will be able to help with: emergency contraception prescriptions, contraceptive pill repeats (and some contraceptive pill starts) and abortion information.

If you are due for your depo provera jab or for your implant to be changed, we will give you a prescription for the pill until we're able to do face-to-face appointments again. 

If you have an appointment booked with us in the next month, we will be in touch with you to reschedule.

Due to infection control requirements we are unable to provide any face-to-face consultations in our clinics during the lockdown.

Schools, principals and teachers: Our Navigating the Journey sexuality education resources are available for just $25 (that's half-price) for the school holidays. Our resource shop is closed for the duration of the lockdown but these e-resources are available for purchase.

Transgender Week of Awareness

Saturday, November 14, 2015

National News

Transgender Week of Awareness kicks off from November the 14th and to celebrate, we’re bringing you a fabulous comic from I’m Local, a new resource project launched by Rainbow Youth.

Queer and Trans* 101 takes us through some of the many gender and sexual identities of people living in New Zealand.

So if words like tangata ira tane, gender queer, or “zhe” and “hir” seem a bit unfamiliar to you, then we think Transgender Week of Awareness is the perfect time to learn, or have a quick refresher, of these different identities.

We can summarise it like this: gender is who you feel you are, and everyone has a gender identity. Sexuality is who you're attracted to.

It doesn't matter if you can't remember all the terms - just approach people with a respectful attitude and you'll be great!
