The way to discuss gender and sexuality has changed significantly, since those now 70+ years old were young and forced into hiding. Some have been open, but go back into their closet. Is nursing currently able to handle that not everyone is a heterosexual, and not everyone is binary man or woman? If you don’t know the conditions of LGBT+ seniors, it becomes hard to give them the right care and attention. Hear, how the seniors want to be able to thrive. Language: Danish. Venue: Debate Tent on the Rainbow Square

How would your rights speech sound, in the year 2018? This workshop explores what speech-writing as a tool can be used for, and how speeches can create room for change and be used to shine the spotlight on LGBT+ person’s experiences and rights.

Venue: Hovedkassen, Copenhagen City Hall

When the Pride movement was founded in the aftermath of the Stonewall riots, transgender persons and drags were key driving forces. Also in Denmark, The Gay Liberation Front was characterised by fluid gender expressions. Here, the activists were men in dresses, who marched through the city and thereby pushed the understanding of gender and sexuality. The question is; have we lost our way? Has the Pride become too CIS-gendered? At this panel, local drag queens will discuss why drag is more than lip-syncing and high heels, and why drags are needed in the Pride. Chantal al Arab will lead you through the debate with some of Copenhagen’s most popular drags taking part. Language: Danish. Venue: Debate Tent on the Rainbow Square

15:00 - 15:45 TRANSGENDER CHILDREN AND YOUTHS

Language: Danish. Venue: Brasserie Royal on the Rainbow Square

15:00 - 15:45 NOT A HETEROSEXUAL – BUT THEN WHAT?

Humans are varied creatures, and sexual and romantic orientations interweave in different ways; not just gay or straight. Bi+; pan; fluid; asexual and biromantic; bisexual and homoromantic… plus many more variations. To get to know yourself, sometimes it helps to know about more terms. Is it also important to meet others that you can reflect in? And what are the options for that today? Language: Danish. Venue: Hovedkassen, Copenhagen City Hall

16:00 - 16:45 HEALTH INEQUALITY AMONGST WSW

There is a high degree of inequality in health and higher mortality rates among LBGT persons, particularly among women, who sleep with women. What can we do to reduce inequality in health? How do we break the barriers faced by women, who sleep with women? What has happened since last year’s debate? Come and join the debate. Language: Danish. Venue: Debate Tent on the Rainbow Square

Exclusion from communities is often followed by the shame of feeling that you do not fit in. Many LGBT+ persons experience loneliness, which can in the worst cases lead to suicides. LGBT Danmark’s hotline invites to a dialogue about loneliness in LGBT+ persons and examines how the feelings of shame and not fitting in can imprint on a life as LGBT+. Language: Danish. Venue: Debate Tent on the Rainbow Square

There are diverse policies for diversity and inclusion, but do those also include transgender children? How are gender identity, diversity and inclusion seen? How is that implemented in practice?

Open “session”, where we discuss the way to become sex-positive again after assaults, rapes, coming out, illness, chemsex, prostitution, shame, gender and body issues and many other topics. The session will be open to any and all questions. We will cover topics such as rebuilding one’s sexuality after a trauma, shame, wrongness, vulnerability, the road to sex-positivism, one’s own kink and sexuality, self-esteem in sexuality – an “okayness” about yourself, acknowledgment and praise. This is a safe-space workshop, where all LGBTQIA+ persons are welcome to participate. Language: Danish. Venue: Vartov, Farvergade 27, 1463 Copenhagen

17:00 - 19:00 BDSM / POWER EXCHANGE WORKSHOP

After a short, theoretical talk about remedies, agreements, respect for boundaries and similar, a practice-game will be organised, where participants can explore the dynamics in devotion, control and boundary-setting with respect and trust. Please bring any remedies, that you might need for the game, yourself; such as blindfolds, clamps, ropes, soft whips or whatever else tickles your fancy. Everyone is expected to join in the games in a respectful and attentive manner and to particiapte in a closing reflection. This is a safe-space workshop, open to all LGBTQIA+ persons.
