Text:Auckland is the place to be for queer youth on Queen's Birthday Weekend, as the city will host Kazam! The gay, lesbian, bi and trans youth hui has been set in stone for 3-6 June and online registrations open on 1 April. Rainbow Youth says it's set to be an inspiring, super-memorable weekend, and it's anticipating a massive turn out of takatapui, queer and trans young people from across the country. There will be a creative think-tank around takataapui, queer and trans youth issues, plus a chance to hang out, meet other amazing young people, play sport, make art, do kapa haka, perform, dream, dance. “Whatever your thing is, we'd love to have you there,” is the message from Rainbow Youth. One of the aims of Kazam! Is to start weaving a national network for takatapui, queer and trans youth. Anyone who wants to come and needs help getting to Auckland can get in touch via Rainbow Youth's Facebook, text Jack on 021 24 555 84 or email Anyone who wants to get involved through MC'ing, creating workshops, performing, facilitating, being a tech-person, running sports activities, or in any other way, can also get in touch with their ideas and we will see if there is a way to weave them in. The hui will be held at a yet-to-be-announced venue near Auckland. Jacqui Stanford - 28th March 2011
