WGN to mark 21 years since Law Reform

Wed 11 Jul 2007 In: New Zealand Daily News

Wellington LGBT nightclub Imerst will celebrate twenty-one years since Homosexual Law Reform this Saturday night (14th July) with a special party. The third and final reading of New Zealand's Homosexual Law Reform Bill was passed at 5.30pm on 9th July 1986. Before the bill passed, New Zealand law meant two men having sex in private could be imprisoned for up to seven years. Rainbow Wellington's Tony Simpson will give a speech at a reception in Imerst's lounge bar at 10pm this Saturday, followed by a dance party with DJ Stu in the main room. Later in the night will be a show from some of Wellingtons finest drag divas, say the Imerst team. The party is free entry, and Imerst has a special 4.30am licence for all those late night partygoers.     Ref: Rainbow Wellington (m)
