A new exhibition at Te Papa, illustrating the dramatic ways in which New Zealand changed in the 20th century, has a significant glbt presence. Opened today, the A Slice of Heaven exhibition encompasses changes in international relations, the changing role of the state in people's lives, Maori resurgence and, under Diversity and Civil Rights, acknowledges the movement towards equality for glbt people. The exhibition features imagery from the peak of law reform days in the 1980 and 90s with a huge 'GAY IS PROUD' heading which can be seen from the fifth and sixth floors of the building. Te Papa curators say the exhibition is planned to remain on show for ten years.
