Spent an exciting and exhausting day in Katrineholm doing motivational speaking to high school kids. Six municipalities in Sörmland are running a joint EU project on gender and identity called 6H – Hur han blev han och hur hon blev hon (Official Web Page). Katrineholm is one of these and offers, among other things, film screenings (Boys Don’t Cry, Entre Les Murs and suprisingly Ken Loach’s Ae Fond Kiss), a youth cabaret, a mini Pride festival on St. Lucia Day and inspirational lectures. Which is what brought me to town.
Today I shared the stage with the extremely talented Oskar Hanska, 2009 Swedish Poetry Slam champion in the individual and impro categories and a stand-up guy. Catch him at the book fair in Gothenburg this week! Since it’s already started and Oskar was needed on the west coast, tomorrow the man parts go to Carl-Martin “Sture” Vikingsson of Svenska Akademien and Stures Dansorkester. Snaps to Sörmland on this whole thing!
