In Stockholm we held a manifestation at a queer venue called Högkvarteret in the center of town.
Four trans activists gave their view on issues on hate crimes, invisibility, resistance, love and hope. Around 40 people where gathered for the event.
The speakers were:
Nadja Karlsson, chairman of FPE-S (full personality expression Sweden)
Christine Sahlström, secretary of KIM (gender, identity, diversity)
Silva Eiseb, trans activist
Micke Kjeldsen, trans activist
We formed a circle with candles and listened to music by Alex Fridunger.
It was a great evening of love, togetherness and hope!
