The organisation Samtökin ’78 is preparing activities for IDAHOBIT under the theme ‘Do Queer Votes Count?’.
In commemoration and in the context of elections, Samtökin ’78 has invited to a panel discussion with candidates for Elections 2014 to discuss their thoughts and ideas on queer issues, especially touching topics of human rights for queer people. The event will be taking place in Reykjavik on May 17 next to the Rainbow Association 78 and will start at 1pm.
You can find the event page here.
