Our Kaupapa

Rūrangi is more than a series - it is a movement to create social change for New Zealand’s gender diverse community by empowering us to tell our own stories and represent ourselves autonomously.

Here’s how Rūrangi is supporting New Zealand’s gender diverse talent throughout all aspects of production to ensure this series is #BYUSANDABOUTUS.

"We're not interested in seeing another story told about us, any more transition stories, trauma or tropes. These are so often about how other people see us, how other people experience us. We want to see stories on screen made by us - the authenticity of our voices, the wholeness of our lives, and the way we truly experience ourselves."
