Takatāpui: Part of the whānau

Takatāpui is a traditional Māori term meaning ‘intimate companion of the same sex.’ It has been reclaimed to embrace all Maori who identify with diverse genders and sexualities such as whakawahine, tangata ira tane, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex and queer. 

This resource is for takatāpui, their whānau and communities, sharing stories and information about identity, wellbeing and suicide prevention.

The resource was written by Elizabeth Kerekere and produced in partnership with Tiwhanawhana Trust.
