My Last Hours on Christmas Island

Leo Jai is currently detained in the Melbourne ImmigrationTransit Accommodation. Previously, he had been held at Australia's Christmas Island detention centre. He writes a dispatch for VICE from the inside. You can read his others here. On October 1, the Christmas Island immigration detention centre quietly closed its doors with little fuss or fanfare. Until then, it had formed part of Australia’s “onshore detention” program, and held a mix of asylum seekers and those detained on character grou

Is Living in a Tiny House Something People Actually Enjoy?

Over the last five years, there’s been a lot of talk about tiny houses. You'll know them as those kitschy little cabins that can be knocked up for cheap and moved about on trailers. Stories about tiny houses tend to dwell on their affordability, ecological sustainability, and the minimalist lifestyle that they entail. There’s even some hope that they represent a solution to Australia’s housing affordability crisis. But what’s it like to actually live in one?

What London's Night Czar Could Learn From Amsterdam's Success

Spend any time in Amsterdam, and it soon becomes apparent that its reputation as one of Europe’s premiere destinations for debauchery and bacchanalian pursuits remains alive and well. The red light district, freely available drugs of all kinds, and the proliferation of super strong beers have turned the city centre into a late night playground for the lads’n’ladettes-on-tour brigade, noisily slurring and vomiting their way between cheap dive bars and seedy alleyways.

The National Front's new clean-cut image looks a lot like the international movement exemplified by Southern and Molyneux. Canadians Lauren Southern and Stefan Molyneux brought to New Zealand a taste of the alt-right attitudes currently shaping the political landscape of North America, and now Jordan Peterson, another Canadian, looks set to repeat the dose with his planned visit to New Zealand early next year.

Is It Time For New Zealand to Recognise Polyamorous Marriages?

I wasn’t sure what I expected entering the house of Gabbi, Adrian and Bernie – a polyamorous triad, who work as sex workers and are active and enthusiastic members of New Zealand’s fetish scene. It's not that I was expecting to find chains hanging from the ceiling, or handcuffs on every bedpost - it’s just that I wasn’t prepared to find a home that was quite this… wholesome.

New Zealand's Girls Behind the Games

Though the fight for gender parity is happening in many industries, few have experienced as much controversy over gender as game development. In the last five years, the gender gap of gamers has closed considerably—with women now representing 45 percent of gamers. But the industry itself is still very much male-dominated. According to recent surveys, 74 percent of people working in game development are men.

Big Dairy and the Squeeze on Small Town New Zealand

Working in the dairy industry is hard work. It requires a huge amount of dedication to work before dawn every day in often harsh and difficult conditions. That hard work was once an investment New Zealand farmers made, as they earned their way to achieving one of the age-old dreams of this country—becoming a farm-owner.
