A British anti-transgender activist is planning a visit to Aotearoa, sparking concerns amongst Rainbow communities who say she has a “track record of hateful speech and the incitement of violence”. An open letter to Immigration Minister Michael Wood by the Rainbow Greens called for the ban of entry of Kellie-Jay Keen-Minshull, also known as Posie Parker, who planned to visit Wellington 26 March and Auckland on 25 March. It called for the denial of any visa application or revocation or any previously granted visa for the founder of the group Standing for Women, arguing she posed “significant risk and threat to public order and the public interest”. In particular, they had concerns for the safety of Aotearoa’s takatāpui, transgender and gender diverse communities.
