LGBTQI+ freedom and liberal democracy

2 augusti, 2023 @ 16:30 - 18:45

Date: August 2nd 2023
Time: Doors open 4:30 pm, discussion 5:45 – 6:45 pm CEST
Location: Fores, Sveavägen 59, Stockholm

Battles that have already been won are increasingly called into question in today’s political landscape. Human rights opponents are gaining ground at the expense of LGBTQI+ freedom around the world, including Sweden. If our basic human rights are in danger, so is our liberal democracy. 

Are we going to stand by and let this continue? No.

Join Fores and RFSL Youth in a panel discussion on which political reforms are needed to defend human rights and our liberal democracy. What has been missing in politics to let this democratic decline go on? What can we learn from history in Sweden and in the United States?


  • Paulina Brandberg (L), Minister for Gender Equality
  • Peter Sidlund Ponkala, acting chairman RFSL
  • Erik Ramanathan, Ambassador of the United States to Sweden
  • Ulrika Westerlund (MP), Parliamentarian and HBTQI Spokesperson for the Green Party
  • James Savage, Founder, CEO, Publisher at The Local Europe
  • Ulrica Schenström, CEO Fores
