Why do some LGBT activists -- and even some culture workers -- limit their focus on the younger, mostly male, white and wealthier participants -- instead of using LGBT cultural events to spead the light and information on all elements of the LGBT community -- women, trans, elderly, handicapped, HIV positive, refugees, immigrants, ethnic minorities, etc.

Why have some enemies argued there is no such thing as gay culture? Why have LGBT activists long denounced culture at a hindrance, a "competitor" instead of an "ally" to the fight for LGBT rights?
Why do both hetero and LGBT activists know so little about the Nordic VIPS in the Nordic scene -- from artists, Nobel prize winners, authors, journalists, military heroes and heads of state...?
Why do the Prides in the Nordic zone have such little interest in Nordic rainbow co-operation which could enrichen all involved...?
