A man of honour has left the world

With great sorrow we learned on Sunday evening that Svein Skeid had passed away in Ullevål hospital in Oslo on Sunday, 13th December, shortly after experiencing a heart attack.

Svein had recently celebrated his 70th birthday, and now leaves a void behind. Through four decades he has worked relentlessly for gay rights and been at the front line of many a battle. The results of Svein’s work are manifold.

Closed and quiet

This autumn, the board applied for support from several sources to ensure that we could get through these tough times and we’re very happy that our application to the Lotteritilsynet was approved.

Together with the membership fees that will be gathered later this year it means that we’ll be fine for now.

We still cannot have parties in our premises since we can’t be socially distant inside but we will have a different type of activity in November, namely an art exhibition.

Also, while the premises are closed we’re proceeding with necessary maintenance.
