We are happy to announce that we can now provide our members with free legal counselling. Erna Á. Mathiesen, lawyer will be providing free counselling sessions. You can come with any issue or questions you wish. If the matter needs extended services of a lawyer, Björg Valgeirsdóttir at Dika lawyers offers a discount to members of Samtökin ´78.
Samtökin ´78 are currently discussing the option of queer education in all of the Hafnarfjörður’s compulsory schools. A draft of the contract states that all staff members at the town’s seven compulsory schools will get a comprehensive education on queer matters such as sexual orientation, gender identity and intersex issues. All 8th graders will also get a visit from our youth educators, who are young people themselves and thus important role models.
Open house at the National Queer Organisation. DJ Alda Villiljós will make the queer music flow. Everybody very welcome!
Accessible for wheelchair users. 22. October at 8 pm Suðurgata 3
