The Labour leadership contest today in New Zealand openly split over Grant Robertson's sexuality.

One of his supporters accused Camp Cunliffe of deliberate gay scaremongering.

Tonight the three contenders are all campaigning in the West Coast town of Blackball, something of a Labour Party shrine – the birthplace of the party.

It's a party now with its first openly-gay leadership contender, although Mr Robertson is concerned his comrades are using his sexuality against him.

Camp Robertson loyalist MP Clare Curran has accused Camp Cunliffe of playing to people's homophobic prejudices to damage Mr Robertson's chances.

She tweeted: "The "NZ's not ready for a gay PM" is prob the biggest dog whistle I've ever heard. Extraordinary that it's also coming from within the Party."

Ms Curran blamed two unnamed union bosses, former party president Mike Williams and David Cunliffe campaign member Jenny Michie of using Mr Robertson's sexuality to undermine him.
