He Takatāpui Ahau

Blayke is out and proud in their everyday community, and would like to be able to be their authentic self at their turangawaewae, their Marae. Unfortunately, Blayke’s fears about returning home become reality when they reunite with their aunties in the kauta. Surprisingly, Blayke finds peace and grounding after an unexpected kōrero with a family member.
