The 6th NORDIC RAINBOW HISTORY & CULTURE MONTH -- October, 2021
Pride House, lör 7 aug 16:00–16:45
How important is LGBT History and Culture?
Why do so many other nations have had such a Rainbow MONTH but we are just beginning?
Arent'we proud of our culture workers -- today and yesterday -- and our VIP historians -- royaly, NoObel prize winners, military heroes, human rights heroes, world famous poets, fairy tale creators, writers, film makers and artists...?
During the seminar, the film "Blue painter" by Olle Holm is shown
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.
