On EuroPride House’s second day, the doors open at 12:00 pm with an exciting and important program. A panel conversation with the Swedish writers Fredrik Apollo Asplund, Joel Mauricio Isabel Ortiz, Saga Becker and Anna Ahlund will be discussing the power of literature for change (in Swedish). How can literature help us to strive for and secure a more open environment for everybody? The Swedish Equality Ombudsman (in Swedish) is going to hold an information lecture about the right to equal treatment in legal determination of parenthood, in Hörsalen.
In 2010, Argentina became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage and shortly afterwards they enacted some of the most progressive transgender rights laws in the world. This has been largely due to the work of LGBT activists. The Argentine Embassy in Sweden will talk about this during Tuesday, a seminar held in English.
