Kevin Hague with Lady Janine and Sir Jerry Mateparae The Green Party has expressed pride in its MP Kevin Hague for being awarded Life Membership of the New Zealand AIDS Foundation. The former executive director of the organisation received the honour alongside Michael Bancroft JP, Tony Hughes QSM and the late Aunty Wai Mason at last night’s ceremony at Government House in Auckland. It was hosted by the NZAF's Patron, the Governor-General Sir Jerry Mateparae. “This award is a clear acknowledgement of Kevin’s work for the health of rainbow communities over the last 25 years,” Green Party Co-leader Metiria Turei says. “We are very lucky to have Kevin in the Green Party, and in Parliament where he is continuing to work passionately to improve the health of rainbow communities and the rest of New Zealanders.” Turei says Hague has continued working for the health of vulnerable communities both in Parliament, and by supporting the work of others in the area. “Congratulations to Kevin, and all the other recipients for receiving this award acknowledging their shared contribution to giving good lives to those people affected by HIV and AIDS and their families.”
