Labour’s Homosexual Agenda

8 September 2005

Labour’s Homosexual Agenda: Promoting Lesbian Lobbyists

The Labour Party’s ‘hidden’ agenda is to boost the number of high profile “gay”-‘rights’ lobbyists, like former Labour Party president and outspoken “open lesbian”, Ms Maryan Street, and lesbian ‘icon’ Ms Louisa Wall (placed at no. 36 no. 46 respectively, on the party list), within its parliamentary ranks. Labour thinks this will help it achieve its social engineering legislative programme that is so dear to the heart of its “gay” and feminist cabal: same-sex marriage, “gay” adoption, anti-discrimination laws to protect trans-sexuals and cross-dressers, and hate-speech laws to crush all criticisms of promiscuous homosexual lifestyles.

Maryan Street and Louisa Wall

The second highest ranked Labour Party List (2005) candidate who is not a sitting MP is the “open lesbian” Maryan Street, former president of the Labour Party. She sits at no 36 position, snuggled up to transsexual MP for Wairarapa, Georgina Beyer, who is placed at no. 35. Ms Street holds a position ahead of six sitting Labour MPs, three of whom hold electorate seats, David Parker (Otago), No.37; Russell Fairbrother (Napier) No. 38 and Lynne Pillay (Waitakere) No. 40; and is ahead of three current Labour List MPs, David Hereora (No. 39), Moana Mackey (No. 41) and Lesley Soper (No. 45).

Louisa Wall, a former Silver Ferns player who has Tainui and Ngati Tuwharetoa heritage, is another prominent lesbian who has been placed on the Labour Party list, at No. 46. Louisa, who lives with her partner Michelle in the Auckland suburb of Waterview, is employed by the Human Rights Commission which she joined in July 2001 and is a paid board member of the taxpayer-funded Sport and Recreation New Zealand. Like Ms Street she has become an icon among the “gay” community. Both were advertised in the following glowing terms as guests at a “gay” political event “Election 2005” held on 10 August 2005.

“Lesbians can make a difference! Maryan Street and Louisa Wall are standing for the Labour party and tell it all about why you should take this election seriously. Both Louisa and Maryan have previously challenged us at aLBa and you won't be disappointed.
They are well known and inspiring lesbian leaders. Louisa, a Black and Silver Fern with a strong interest in public and social policy. Maryan, a seasoned political organiser and manager, rising to the position of Party President of the Labour Party.”

Earlier this year, Maurice Williamson, National MP for Pakuranga, referred to Ms Street in parliament as a scoring a trifecta in being a “lesbian” a “woman” and a former “Labour Party president” (6/4/05). These ‘qualifications’ appeared to him to be essential to get ahead on the Labour Party List.

Maryan Street is reported as being very very close to Prime Minister Helen Clark and a core member of influence in the “gay”/ feminist cabal within the Labour Party that includes Ms Clarke’s close advisor, Heather Simpson, another lesbian. Both Ms Street and Ms Wall are members of “Labour’s Rainbow Team” and are regularly referred to as “gay candidates” in pro-homosexual publications.

While Ms Street has little chance of winning the conservative electorate of Taranaki-King Country where she is standing, she is expected to get into parliament based on her high Labour Party list ranking. She was one of the thousand who signed the Civil Union Bill support ad in the Sunday Star-Times, says the issue is one of human rights and choice.

“It doesn’t degrade marriage – it simply recognizes the same legal status and obligations for other couples without altering one jot the rights and recognition of married heterosexuals,” she told GayNZ.com.

Ms Street is an industrial relations academic who headed the Centre for Labour Studies, University of Auckland. She is a political activist with extensive experience in the union movement.

Ms Wall says denying same-sex and de facto couples the right to enter into a civil union just because they are a minority is undemocratic.

“As a member of a socially democratic society, I support full citizenship rights,” she says. “We all have the right to form a civil union if we so choose, and this legislation will formalise that right, especially for the rainbow community whom this right has been denied.”

The extent to which homosexuals and lesbians have infiltrated the Labour Party, or rather been welcomed in with open arms and bent wrists, came into sharp focus when Peter Kaiser, the homosexual partner of “openly gay” Cabinet Minister, Chris Carter, withdrew his nomination for the presidency of the party.

His decision followed a sharp drop in labour popularity in an opinion poll, and criticism that the party represented gays and lesbians and other minority and special interest groups, rather than a broader cross-section of New Zealand society.
