Beyer’s work to be honoured at fundraiser

Georgina Beyer’s work will be recognised in an upcoming tribute evening,

which will double as a fundraiser as she remains on dialysis awaiting a
kidney transplant.

The woman who will go down in history as both the world’s first trans
mayor, and first trans MP, has chronic kidney failure.

People from across politics and New Zealand’s gay scene are now joining
forces to take part in a tribute night at Wellington’s James Cabaret on
Thursday 14 November.

The gathering will also celebrate Beyer’s 56th birthday.

Organiser Jo Paku says the event is about formally recognising the work

Beyer has done in shaping New Zealand’s political and social landscape, and
the positive impacts that she has had on the global stage.

It’s also about supporting Beyer on her journey to well-being while on
dialysis and awaiting a kidney transplant.

“She has been an inspiration to many lives through her work with community
organisations, local and central Government and her commitment to art,
culture and heritage,” Paku says.

“It is her unique story that we are paying homage to, as well as
commemorating her 56th birthday.

Broadcaster Shane Taurima will be the compere, while the entertainment will
include Amanduh la Whore presents, Lorae & Pinky, Zane Te Wiremu Jarvis,
Miss Ribena and the Southside Sisters.

Tickets are $115 per person, which will include “three course dining,
bubbles, wine, birthday cake, entertainment and sparkles”.

You can book by emailing georginatribute@ gmail.com or calling Jo on 021 100
2351.
