New Zealand has a reputation for being one of the most accepting and progressive countries in the world when it comes to LGBTQ rights. In 2013, New Zealand became the first country in Asia-Pacific to legalize same-sex marriage, and earlier this year, the government passed a law making it illegal to discriminate against people on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
Despite these progressive laws, however, many members of the LGBTQ community in New Zealand still face discrimination and exclusion on a daily basis. In a recent survey of LGBTQ people in New Zealand, nearly 60% said they had experienced some form of discrimination in the past 12 months, and almost one-third said they had been physically or verbally abused because of their sexuality or gender identity.
There is still a long way to go before New Zealand is truly an inclusive and safe place for all members of the LGBTQ community, but the country is heading in the right direction. Thanks to the efforts of organizations like Rainbow Youth and OUTLine NZ, more and more people are becoming aware of the issues faced by LGBTQ people and are working to make New Zealand a more inclusive place for all.
The job prospects for the migrant LGBTQ community in New Zealand are good. There are a number of organizations that work to support LGBTQ migrants, such as Rainbow Youth and OUTLine NZ. These organizations can provide advice and information on employment rights, as well as help with finding a job that is inclusive and welcoming for LGBTQ people.
There are also a number of support groups and networks for LGBTQ migrants in New Zealand, such as the Rainbow Migration Network.
