LegaliseLove, a grassroots New Zealand campaign, is calling for full human rights for non-heterosexual New Zealanders.
The campaign said, although LGBT New Zealanders having the right to enter into civil unions, it was now time to finish the job.
“LegaliseLove is a campaign working towards two things: marriage equality and adoption rights for non-heterosexual New Zealanders,” the campaign stated on its website.
The campaign also said that under New Zealand law a same-sex partnership cannot adopt as a couple, but can as individuals, which creates significant legal issues for same-sex families.
LegaliseLove have planned a march to the New Zealand Parliament on October 20.
