March supporting gay law reform

March supporting gay law reform

This woman with her 'gay bitch' dog and her male colleagues with multi-coloured balloons are marching on 24 May 1985 in support of the Homosexual Law Reform Bill. Until the passage of the bill, sex acts between men were a punishable offence. The move to end such discrimination followed from the emergence of ideas of personal liberation and group identity, which arose among a younger generation in New Zealand from the late 1960s.
