Join Gay Wellington! Next intake: 21 April 2012

If you'd like to do something for the community, now's the time to join Gay Wellington. We're not just a facebook group, we also run the Wellington Gay & Lesbian Helpline, coming out groups for men and women, School's Out, a grants committee for men with HIV/AIDS, we support Tranzform and we get involved with a lot of other things as well.

If you do decide to join you'll be part of a group of over 40 other volunteers, all working under the umbrella of a registered charity that started in Wellington back in 1979.

It doesn't cost anything to become a member apart from your time. And you're guaranteed to learn something and meet new people. We have monthly guest speakers (Agenda and the queer network for union members were the two most recent) and are planning a series of social events during the year.

If you are interested we'd usually catch up over coffee first to give you a better overview of the group and invite you to an intake/training day. The next one will be on Saturday 21 April from 9.30-4.00pm. Give us a call at helpline on 473 7878 or email us at You can find out more on our website.
