Honour Project Pūrākau | Digital Stories
Twelve takataapui people talk to the Honour Project Aotearoa about their lives. They are rangatahi, mātua, kaumatua, sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, aunties, uncles, mums, dads, nannies, koros, students, teachers, artists, managers, researchers, and leaders in their communities. All are respected members of whānau, hapū and iwi. They share their experiences of keeping well - often in the face of discrimination and other challenges. Some talk about the value of knowing who you are; having supportive whānau, and having good role models. Others talk about being part of takataapui and LGBTQI networks and having strong advocacy groups working for them and their communities. All want low cost, welcoming, non-discriminatory and well-resourced health services to help them to get well and stay well. He mihi maioha ki a rātou.
