“I was talking to my brother on the phone earlier. And again, as we often do, we ended up talking about the very problem of being forced between several anticipations when it comes to gender and sexuality. And questions arose. Why do we people limit ourself to the normative notion of life? And for what cost do this diminish our own person?”Marielle Kalldal
Celebrating Pride, reminds me once more the importance of articulating the freedom of love, the privilege of being true to oneself and the liberty of crossing borders where it is not only possible but needed. Yesterday, Oslo was indeed a lovely city to be in. The Pride parade continues to resemble the fights for equity that many of us go through to get beyond the already prescriptive landscape. By doing this together, remembering the past and working towards future we can challenge the anticipated standards and put it in a broader perspective.
