The Campaign to Pardon Gays in Aotearoa
Last updated 8 August 2017
On 6 July 2017, the New Zealand House of Representatives formally apologised
for the past convictions of men for consensual homosexual acts. This is an
important step towards reconciliation, and one of the remedies requested
by the petition organised by the Campaign to Pardon Gays in Aotearoa.

the raw footage of the proceedings in Parliament.
At this stage, a Bill to put in place a process for issuing pardons to men
unjustly convicted has been referred to the Justice and Electoral Select Committee. Public submissions are
currently being accepted regarding the Bill. The submission process will be open until Friday 18 August 2017.
