3 Articles on NZ questioned over IGM by UN-CRC on GayNZ on FacebookThanks and kudos to GayNZ for being the first media outlet to report on the recent review of NZ (transcription) by the Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC) during its 73rd session – thrice:

>>> Report on the intersex Q&A (19.9.)
>>> Comment on the "shameful silence" in the Gov replies (23.9.)
>>> The main body of the private ITANZ NGO report (24.9.)

(No thanks and kudos however for repeatedly reproducing our transcription and photo without giving a link to the source and no credit at all respectively, and for partially not being able to spell out in another instance.)

Let's hope that also mainstream media will pick up this important topic – latest when NZ is going to be reprimanded in about a week or so!
