Lynda and Jools Topp were out as lesbians when they began their careers as entertainers in the early 1980s. The country-and-western comedy duo, now middle-aged, appeared with their partners at the premiere of the movie The Topp Twins: untouchable girls at the Sky City Centre in Auckland, in April 2009. Donna Luxton and Lynda Topp (left image) had been together for four years and lived in South Canterbury with Luxton's two sons. Jools Topp and Mary Massara (right) had a lifestyle block in West Auckland and had been partners for 16 years.
