The statistics speak for themselves: The likelihood of being stigmatised and the probability of experiencing discrimination and hate crimes only because of being who you are, increases significantly when you are an LGBTI+ person, and the risk of developing mental illnesses like depression and anxiety is higher if you belong to one or more gender and sexual minorities. In acknowledgment of these gruesome facts, we dare you to come and spend a horrifically cosy afternoon with us as we get acquainted with the more gloomy parts of Danish, Swedish, and international LGBTI+ literature. You better boo-lieve it will be gourd!
What to expect?
Copenhagen: An afternoon in the company of the drag queens Ramona Macho, Chantal al Arab, and Danna Belle both live in Copenhagen and online from Malmö. Dressed up in their most terrible Halloween outfits, they will be reading excerpts from “En Rigtig Kærlighed” (2019) by Danish author Tomas Lagermand Lundme (this reading will be in Danish), and “Don’t Look Now” (1971) by British author Daphne du Maurier (this reading will be in English). You will hear the story of an all-consuming love between two men and an assault that changes everything between them, and Maurier’s classic thriller that is bound to creep you out. Language: Danish and English.
When and where?
In Copenhagen, the historic Admiral Gjeddes Gaard on Store Kannikestræde 10A provides the perfect location and atmosphere for the event. In Malmö, the event takes place in The Red Room at the Malmö City Library on Kung Oscars väg 11. Both events begin at 15.45.
We hope to see you for a happy HallowQueen
Note that the event in Copenhagen is not wheelchair accessible.
