The network Proud Parents

In our society, heterosexuality and a biological approach to gender are norms. Parents, too, may need a coming-out process. In the network Proud Parents parents, grandparents or other people close to the family of young LGBTQI people meet to exchange experiences and gain knowledge about LGBTQI.

RFSL Crip Rights Network

RFSL works in and is affected by, an inaccessible society where people can’t realise their disability rights. Disability right means that every person has the right to self-actualisation and full participation in all parts of society. It is based on human rights.

The Crip Rights Network is a network for LGBTQI-people with a norm-breaking functional variation and their allies to pursue disability rights in RFSL.

Convener of the network: Nicklas Axelsson
