What you need to know about Voicing Pride
By leveraging the power of storytelling and social media, we are committed to providing an inclusive space that gives a voice to the unheard members of LGBTQ+ communities across all New Zealand secondary schools. Our mission is to shed light on the lives of students and teachers who work tirelessly to make their school a place of safety and pride, as well as the unnoticed struggles of those who remain silenced today.
In doing so, we hope to promote a New Zealand in which LGBTQ+ students and staff are not only protected from any form of discrimination, but are also fully empowered by their school communities.
