Another year, another Gaylient. Hello, and happy gay week to all you queerdos and queer-interested folk at Victoria University. This is your Salient.

As you open up this week’s Salient you probably noticed some immediate differences. It’s not even called Salient. It’s Te Ao Marama. No shit. ‘They’ve’ hijacked your Salient! How dare they?
