Out of the ashes: celebrating queer histories

Audio from the event to mark four major queer anniversaries: 30 years since the formation of the Lesbian and Gay Archives of New Zealand Te Pūranga Takatāpui o Aotearoa (LAGANZ) in 1992, the formation of the Dorian Society (1962), the beginnings of Gay Liberation in New Zealand (1972) and the launch of the third volume of the zine The Archive is Alive. This recording was sourced via the livestream. Unfortunately the waiata were not captured well by the microphones and so have not been included. Other parts of the event have also been edited. A special thank you to the participants and organisers for allowing this event to be recorded and shared.
