The Campaign to Pardon Gays in Aotearoa
Campaign update
Last updated 8 April 2018
On 3 April 2018, the New Zealand House of Representatives voted unanimously to accept the Criminal Records (Expungement of Convictions for Historial Homosexual Offences) Bill at its Third Reading. This means there is now a legal basis for a process to expunge convictions for consensual historical homosexual acts. This follows the formal apology of the House of Representatives on 6 July 2017.

If you wish to apply to have your convictions expunged, or you wish to represent someone else in the expungement process, we suggest that you read the following resources published by the Ministry of Justice. Note that some specific aspects of the procedure are not (as of 8 April 2018) available, but will likely be forthcoming shortly. The Campaign to Pardon Gays in Aotearoa is deeply grateful to all who have helped to reach this stage. Essentially, all requests by the Campaign have been granted by the Government; this means that the Campaign is likely at an end. However, we still welcome your contacting us.
