Wed 21 Nov 2007 In: New Zealand Daily News View at Wayback

The world's largest network of gay Asian/non-Asian groups will soon have a new branch in Wellington. The Long Yang Club network provides a place where gay man from different cultures can meet each other socially and share experiences. There are over 40 branches across the world, including Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland. "We'll go out for dinners, bush walks, movies and sports events," says Wellington's new Long Yang Club organiser Michael Pringle. "Badminton is a game that a lot of Long Yang members in other centres really enjoy, and we already have a group of gay men in Wellington who enjoy Badminton, so that will be a continuing part of our activities." The group is primarily aimed at gay Asian man and their friends, but that doesn't mean others are excluded, explains Pringle. "And it's a pretty broad definition of Asia - anything from the Middle East, Far East or South East Asia. But really it's open to all cultures." The Wellington branch of the Long Yang club's first meeting is scheduled for 7pm, Saturday 1 December 2007. "All are welcome to come along to the introductory evening, and ideas for future events are welcome."
