This Worry Week the Wire is looking at Pride issues. Jemima talked to academic and transwoman Lexie Matheson about Pride and the Police, the rainbow Police car in the Auckland Pride Parade and about the changing attitudes towards the queer community in New Zealand.
Justice Minister Andrew Little talks with Lachlan about legal aid and a recent surge in the polls for the Labour party, as well as Jackie Edmond from Family Planning NZ about abortion law reform. Jemima talks to AUT senior lecturer Lexie Matheson about Pride, the police, and whether attitudes are changing, while Leah has an interview with Alison Eddy from the New Zealand College of Midwives, about a shortage in the sector. Finally there's This Day in History, which takes us back to 1986 and a revolution in the Philippines.
On the show this week, we check out some cool tracks by Nothing (our 'Let's Get Physical' artist for the week), Kid Trails and PEACH PIT. Plus, Aimee is back with Who Arted and we chat with Blake Feeney about his upcoming show at the Depot in Devonport.
