Tired but happy volunteers and board members after the parties.

A successful Pride 2021

Covid also had its effect this year on Oslo Pride but that didn’t stop SLM Oslo from having a stand in Pride Park and arranging a 3 day street party outside our club. Additionally there was a second hand gear market and café and a new Mr. Leather Norway took office, Ambjörn.

A satisfied President:

An exhausted but cheerful President took time to talk to this writer.

  • The pandemic did not make it easy for us to plan far ahead but we realized that it wouldn’t be a regular Pride this year, says Marius, President of SLM Oslo. 

SLM Oslo joined together with SMiL (Norwegian organization for fetishists and sadomasochists) to have a stand in the Pride Park at Spikersuppa. SLM also had their own street parties.

Mr. Leather Norway 2021

2021 has so far been a year that is still different from the “normal” and the way we celebrate Pride this year is no exception. During our street festivities in front of SLM Oslo and in the week prior to that, we had planned to hold the Mr. Leather Norway 2021 Contest. However, we did not receive enough candidates to hold the Title competition as planned this year. The board of SLM Oslo did an evaluation of the candidates we did receive and discussed the plan for the Title.

According to the rules laid out, it reverts to the board of SLM Oslo to decide once it is clear that the competition cannot be held. After deliberations we unanimously decided to award the Title of Mr. Leather 2021 to Ambjörn Söderberg. We are convinced he will honor the trust that the club has placed in him by awarding him the Title. In the Board’s opinion , Ambjörn is a very worthy candidate to hold the Title and fulfills all the requirements we have laid out for Mr. Leather Norway. The Board has witnessed Ambjörn’s growth within the Leather Community over the past years and his support for events and groups both here in Norway and abroad .

Here you can see his own presentation for the candidacy for Mr. Leather Norway 2021.

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.
