Gaynz.com: End of the road

GayNZ.com has announced they will close at the end of May 2017 after sixteen years.

In their statement they state that times have changed and in particular that “GayNZ.com grew out of a challenge in another time of great change. In 2001 the post-law reform age was combining with the start of the digital revolution and we rose up to tackle the challenge.”

While gaynz.com will be missed there are numerous alternative online resources – check out our Media and Community categories for online resources.

Finally from an historical perspective in the 1980s and early 90s there were some gay bulletin boards which moved to the internet from around 1993 to 95 when the first commercial ISP (Iconz) & then IHUG were started in New Zealand. (Anyone remember the good old dial tone)
