ITANZ is proud to share the role of host Ropu, alongside the Tiwhanawhana Trust and RainbowYOUTH for this years ILGA World Conference, 2019!

ILGA is being held here in Te Whanganui-a-Tara.

Up to 400 people from 160 countries are attending this year's conference! Over 30 intersexy people are among this wonderful bunch.

Our visitors for the conference feature many activists and contributors to LGBTIQA+ organisations. 

Over 120 scholarships were granted for the event, supporting delegates from 87 countries – over 75% of whom come from the Global South. A strong emphasis was placed on supporting people from marginalised population groups and identities - including sex workers, persons with disabilities, persons living with HIV, and more.
