Wed 14 Jul 2010 In: New Zealand Daily News View at Wayback

Sue Dunlop Lesbian musician Sue Dunlop will be farewelled in Wellington tomorrow, after losing a short battle with cancer. The 51-year-old died on Sunday night with loved-ones by her side. She was known for her Friday night performances as the Dragon Bar on Courtenay Place, which featured everything from sing-a-longs to squeaky toy solos. Dunlop was also a stage performer; she was a member of the lauded women's comedy troupe Hen's Teeth from 1989 and performed in the comedy spoof show The Truth About Love from 2003. A large turnout is expected at her funeral, which will be held at The Pines, Houghton Bay on Thursday 15 July at 2pm, followed by a private cremation. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Mary Potter Hospice or the SPCA would be appreciated. Dunlop is described by friends as having many wonderful qualities, including a kind and incredibly generous nature. She was also a volunteer on the AsiaPacific Outgames teams and co-chair David Hindley says she will be sorely missed. "She'll not only be a real loss to us, but the entire community. She was someone that was held in very high regard." If you would like to share your memories of and tributes to Sue Dunlop, please email add them to ourforum
