Launch of GenderNeutral.co.nz website


GenderNeutral.co.nz are excited to announce the launch of their new website, GenderNeutral.co.nz.


GenderNeutral.co.nz is a little business, based in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, that came about after the founders, Stace and Duncan, saw a need in our community to have an easy way to make bathrooms accessible for everyone.


The need for gender neutral, accessible bathrooms is highlighted by recent findings that 1.2% of high school students in Aotearoa identify as Transgender, and a further 2.5% are not sure of their gender identity (from the Youth’12 Transgender fact sheet). When searching on Refuge Restrooms at the time of writing, RainbowYOUTH is the only bathroom in Auckland listed with a positive rating, indicating its safety for our gender diverse communities.


Through their first line of products, bathrooms signs, GenderNeutral.co.nz hopes to promote safe bathrooms for people of all gender identities, and encourage businesses, charities, and individuals alike to make a stand and say that their bathroom is safe for everyone.


In recognising that GenderNeutral.co.nz is part of a community that has a strong emphasis on support and charity, 34% of all profits will be donated to RainbowYOUTH.


Co-founder Duncan says:
“I’m really excited to be able to talk about this project that has been in the works for a number of months. It mixes some of my key passions of technology, raising awareness and supporting the community.”


Co-founder Stace says:
“This awesome initiative is a mix of my love for being creative and a passion for promoting acceptance of gender diversity.“

2040 Target And Lower Standards: “Swimmable” Rivers Five Times More Likely To Make You Sick

Forest & Bird has condemned the government’s new water quality standards, warning New Zealanders that they lock in current levels of water pollution and allow for a 5-fold increase in the chance of getting sick from swimming in a river.

“Despite an explicit assurance from Minister Smith that the new water standards would provide for human and ecosystem health, he has failed to deliver on either of these things,” says Forest & Bird CEO Kevin Hague. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On The Mana-Maori Party Deal

If the self-interest involved wasn’t so blatant, the electorate deal between the Maori Party and Hone Harawira would be kind of poignant. It’s a bit like seeing the remaining members of Guns’n’Roses or the Eagles back on the road touring the nostalgia circuit… playing all the old hits of Maori unity and kaupapa Maori politics. More>>
