Nexus Issue 21—Featuring cover artwork by Daniela Gilbon, centrefold photography by Laurence Watts, and horoscope artwork by Josh Nelson.
Waikato is hardly a bastion for queer people. The ultra-masculine, conservative image of our region has alienated diversity and allowed the remainder of the country to give us flack about being blue and backwards. Despite supplying kiwi cowboys with our yodelling versions of Ellen, the Topp Twins, our fair region is not as queer-friendly as could be. Jennie-Louise Kendrick takes a deep delve into how rainbow our region is, and how much it could be.
