Rainbow groups headed to court over anti-transgender activist

From Morning Report, 7:09 am on 24 March 2023

Auckland Pride's executive director says court action was taken against an anti-trans activist because they believe she will incite hatred and violence against trans people.

Rainbow groups are taking last minute legal action to try to bar Kellie-Jay Keen-Minshull from holding rallies in Auckland and Wellington this weekend.

She is set to arrive later today.

Max Tweedie told Morning Report while their action may raise her public profile it's worth it to try to stop her.
