Narrating Identity within 'Queer Spaces', is a project of documentation and conversation responding to the contemporaneity of language use across the queer communities of Aotearoa. TRAVERSE explores the commonalities between queer and gender-diverse people of different generations and identities, to engender understanding and respect for all. In this modern environment of growing generational disconnection, TRAVERSE reveals and gives a voice to the LGBTQIA+ community in New Zealand. TRAVERSE thanks the following for their conversation.
