From First Up, 5:42 am on 20 October 2020

New Zealand now holds the title of the most rainbow Parliament in the world. Eleven LGBTQ people won seats in the weekend's election - that's 9.16 percent of the 120 MPs. The United Kingdom - the former title holder - currently has 45 openly gay members in its 650-member House of Commons, or 7 percent. Labour has seven LGBTQ MPs and the Greens have four - an increase of two for each party since the last election. Louise Ternouth reports.
