The Rainbow Special Issue of Rangahau Aranga: AUT Graduate Review is now published and live online!
The issue features gorgeous cover art by AUT Master of Visual Arts graduate Tony Guo, an opening letter from Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research Professor Mark Orams, and articles on topics of gender, sexuality, and identity from AUT postgraduate students.
In this issue:
- Ezra Baldwin reimagines classical and mythological figures in queer collage to create explorations of non-binary gender identity.
- Janette Howe traces the impact of parents’ advocacy for their transgender children in secondary schools.
- Cover artist Tony Guo paints in the tradition of absurdism to challenge the heteronormative gender binary.
- Elizabeth Jennens researches the experiences of cisgendered women with transmasculine partners during their transition.
- Tangaroa Paora describes the process of creating live performance, poetry, and portraiture to explore takatāpui identity within te ao Māori.
There’s also a beautiful editorial from guest editor Craig Murdoch.
