Snapshot 2000

At the start of 2000 a series of phone interviews were conducted for the not-for-profit website gaze.org.nz. The site was interested in the similarities and differences in coming out in the last part of the 20th Century.

Each participant was asked four questions - when did they realise they were queer, how did they come out, what was their first (same) sexual experience and did they have a message or personal advice for people considering coming out.
