Some very different LGBT New Zealand writers are here to amuse, surprise, educate and at times unsettle you in GayNZ.com’s Blogger Zone.
Let’s meet our blogging crewâ€¦

Lesbotron lives life like thereâ€™s no tomorrow. And when tomorrow comes she has a moment of â€śdid I really do that?â€ť and then writes about her experiences be it hilarious, weird or insane.

Michael Stevens knows he’s going to piss a few people off with his blogging views – “but hell, that’s their problem, right?” Writing, like cigarettes and good sex, can get to be an addictive vice, and Michael says he’s a happy addict of at least two of these.

Craig Young is a well-respected commentator on the influences of politics and religion on LGBT New Zealanders. We let him loose on whateverÂ topic captures his attention.

His fellow students donâ€™t believe him when he tells them h used to know how to drive tractors. Country music is one of his guilty pleasures, and David Bain sweaters are also right up there.
