Takatāpui once meant an intimate companion of the same sex. Nowadays it's used to mean Māori who have diverse genders and sexualities. I really enjoy the word because I think it brings me as Māori and brings me as queer together. I feel like it's a more whole identity of who I am.

– Kassie Hartendorp, on her kapa haka group being asked to sing at the Wellington International Pride Parade
