The Beyer I Can Support

From GayNZ:

Former Labour MP Georgina Beyer will stand for the Mana Party in Te Tai Tonga, the South Island Maori seat.

Beyer has been suffering from kidney failure, but says her health is “steady” and “it’s great to have a new challenge”.

“I’m really excited and things are already full steam ahead for the campaign,” she says.

Beyer was the world’s first trans mayor, then in 1999 famously beat Paul Henry in Wairapara to become the world’s first trans MP. She remained in Parliament as a Labour MP until 2007.

Notably, none of the people Georgina has ever run against have been main sponsors of successful trans rights bills.
