Rainbow is a term used to represent the LGBTQI community (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transsexual Queer and Intersex).
As Pasifika, we acknowledge that this term excludes our Pacific community of Fa’afafine (Samoan), Fakaleiti (Tongan), Whakawahine/takatapui/tangata ira tane (Maori), ‘Akava’ine (Cook Island) Drodrolagi (Fijian) Mahu (Hawaiian) so we also use the term MVPFAFF.
Rainbow Fale represents all the work we do that contributes to building a supportive environment for the Pasifika Rainbow community. We provide a safe place to develop resilience, which leads to a greater confidence in school, family and community settings for our Rainbow youth.
The key programmes include:
Youth Action and Advisory Group
Diversity Groups at High School
LANU end of year event
