What happens next? How can I learn more about gender-diversity? Where can I reach other people in my community or with shared experiences?

These are a few of the questions we regularly get asked at Rūrangi Q&A's, so we have put together some links on this page to help start you off.

The resources, community groups and organisations here do amazing work and need your support - so we encourage you to reach out and support them. They are also not the only groups working in these areas and we would love to include more; if you have any suggestions please email them to so that we can include them.
