NORDIC RAINBOW CULTURAL CO-OPERATION WITH EASTERN EUROPE -- why is this co-operation to important?
Pride House, Sat 7 Aug 3:00 PM–3:45 PM
What does it give to the Eastern European colleagues often facing enormous homophobia from their regimes, the media and religious leaders?
What does it give to Swedes and other Nordic colleagues -- sometimes forgetting the homophobia and tolerance just down the street -- across the water....?
BILL SCHILLER -- an American-born Swede who received asylum in Sweden during the Vietnam war. Worked several decades as a radio journalist for Radio Sweden's English-language service untill retirement.
Worked for years for RFSL (including as international secretary), and for the ILGA Information Secretariat those years it was based in Stockholm, and for years to convince Swedish Amnesty and other Amnesty sections to finally adopt homosexual prisoners.
Also helped start the ILGCN -- the international rainbow culture network -- when ILGA refused to deal with rainbow culture as "hindering" the work with law reform.
Today both Tupilak and the ILGCN work together with seminars, performances, art exhibits, musical events, film screenings, etc. and now the coming October 6th Nordic Rainbow History & Culture Month and the campaign for LGBT Monuments in the Nordic zone.
