The Campaign to Pardon Gays in Aotearoa
Campaign update
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.

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.
