Terrorist attack against Oslo Pride. What does it mean for Norwegian LGBT-support?
Yesterday I posted an article about positive Norwegian attitudes towards queer and trans people. Tonight Oslo Pride was attacked by a terrorist.
In spite of all the anti-LGBT propaganda we see these days, a Norwegian survey may indicate that this is not necessarily a sign of weakening support for queer and trans people.
Read my article “New Norwegian survey shows increased public support for LGBTQ+ people, trans people included” for more on this.
Tonight, however, a queer Oslo watering hole celebrating today’s Pride Parade was attacked by a man with a gun. Two people died, many more are wounded. Does this mean that LGBT support is waning in Norway?
I would argue that this is not the case. I honestly think this attack will lead to an increased support for LGBTQA people in my country.
