NORDIC CAMPAIGN FOR LGBT MONUMENTS IN THE NORDIC ZONE - 2021
Pride House, Fri 6 Aug 3:00 PM–3:45 PM
Why are there so many LGBT monuments across the globe -- from USA to Vienna to Germany to Spain to Austrlia -- but none in the Nordic region? A monument as a tribute to LGBT people discriminated, imprisoned and executed over the millennium -- not just in the Nazi concentration camps but years after -- and centuries before. A monument standing as a place for memorials and ceremonies -- long after the Pride parade has passed and is forgotten.
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.
