More Than Four

Audience: Youth & Whānau, Schools

More Than Four is a video resource from InsideOUT, exploring the identities and experiences of and beyond ‘LGBT’ identities. We interviewed over 30 members of the rainbow community to create a series of short videos speaking explore the experiences of people who are asexual, aromantic, intersex, non-binary, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, takatāpui, fa’afafine, akava’ine, queer parents and people who identify as both Māori, Pasifika or Asian and queer..

More Than Four has been created as a free resource to be used in a range of ways. This could include holding a screening event for your community, using the videos in sexuality and gender diversity training, using them in classrooms, using them in queer straight alliance/rainbow diversity group meetings, sharing on social media and much more!

Available to watch online.

pōwhiri guidebook

Audience: Youth & Whānau 

InsideOUT’s Pōwhiri Guide Book was created as an inclusive resource to support young people to understand what a pōwhiri is, and how a pōwhiri can be inclusive of takatāpui, whakawhahine, tangata ira tane and trans and gender diverse people given that gender roles are involved.

The resource is free to be shared and used as it is, however we recommend always checking in with tangata whenua at the marae you are visiting around their inclusion/knowledge around gender diversity. Each marae may have different understandings, and it is best to have a conversation about this early on. You are welcome to use this resource as a tool to support these conversations, and we also recommend the resources at takatapui.nz

Available to download.
