TUESDAY 14/8

18:00 - 18:45 ASEXUAL IN A SEXUAL SOCIETY

A widespread understanding of sexuality is that of sexual liberation being a human right, but therein also lies a norm that “real” liberation includes hooking up with whomever you want, whenever you want, however you want. What happens for those, who fall outside that norm and do not have an interest in sex? Are they excluded from sexual liberation? Does it even hold true, when we in Denmark believe to have the right to our own sexuality? These questions are debated by the Danish Association of Asexuals. A panel will invite to a busy debate – with each other and with the audience. They seek to make it clear how asexuality affects various current understandings of sexuality, and to uncover the stigma met by asexuals in a sexualised society. Language: Danish. Venue: Debate Tent on the Rainbow Square

18:00 - 18:45 LGBTQI FAMILY FORMATION

It’s not easy to form a family as an LGBTQI person. First off, there is the biological part: Should it be adoption, a rainbow family, a sperm donor, a surrogate or an entirely different option? Next up are the mental challenges, which can be both internal and external: How will the child react to the way it was brought into this world? Do others think of us as a real family? Who is the mother, and who is the father – and are both of those even needed? The chairman of Dare Danmark, Mikkel Raahede, is the father of 3 girls born by a carrier in the USA. Signe Fjord is a single mum by choice. Along with representatives of other family forms, they meet for a candid chat with each other and the audience about family formation, pressure of expectations and release. Language: Danish. Venue: Hovedkassen, Copenhagen City Hall

19:00 - 20:00 YOUTH POLITICAL DEBATE

We have invited the youth political parties to talk about LGBTQ rights in Denmark, where we will cover topics including: Where are we today? Where do we want to go? - And not least, what can the youth parties do to help lift the LGBTQ agenda? Language: Danish. Venue: Debate Tent on the Rainbow Square

19:00 - 19:45 A NEED FOR SEPARATIST SPACES?

We take our basis in the group KSKyoung and the opportunities and challenges in creating separatist spaces for a single minority in a minoritised environment. As an example, is it alright to make a space only for women, who sleep with women? Further to this, we dive deeper into some of the talks and exchanges that may take place in a space for WSWs. Language: Danish. Venue: Hovedkassen, Copenhagen City Hall

19:30 - 21:00 WORKSHOP ABOUT INTIMACY AND CLOSENESS

On the LGBTQIA+ scene, many are happy to talk about sex. Casual sex, one-night stands and sex clubs. Sex on drugs and sex when drunk. But maybe we don’t talk quite as much about closeness and intimacy? In the hunt for the right partner, for many it becomes hard to keep themselves in focus. Are we sometimes willing to forego protection in our eagerness for acknowledgement and physical closeness, because we are scared of rejection? Does chemsex and alcohol become a choice, because we are vulnerable? And does HIV become just one pill a day? That, and much more, is the focus for MSM campaign manager Karoline Barkvoll Holstad and clinical sexologist Tonny Brønløkke Hertz from AIDS-Fondet. The workshop will be a mix of presentations, assignments and debate; and is a safe-space workshop open to all LGBTQIA+ persons. Language: Danish. Venue: AIDS-Fondet, Vestergade 18E, 1456 Copenhagen
