Shortland Street

SAME SAME BUT DIFFERENT WRITERS FESTIVAL


Saturday 18 February, 1pm 2017

Sir Paul Reeves Building  Room WG126, AUT, 2 Governor Fitzroy Place, Auckland City
Note: this event took place during the 2017 Auckland Pride Festival. See aucklandpride.org.nz for the 2018 Festival.

Shortland Street has consistently pushed the envelope by introducing LGBTIQ characters into New Zealand’s most widely watched television drama. It’s been transformational and enlightening – and especially important given its vulnerable youth audience. How do they do it?

Producer Maxine Fleming, trans actor Tash Keddy, story-liner and one-time Shortland Street star Harry Dickinson, plus scriptwriter Cole Meyers, share the journey. Chaired by actor and Shortland Street casting director, Andrea Kelland.
