Bjarni Snæbjörnsson (he), actor, perfomer and writer, and Svandís Anna Sigurðardóttir (she), LGBTIQ+ and Gender Equality Advisor at the City of Reykjavík Human Rights and Democracy Office, open this year's Equality Days with a conversation about pushback in the queer rights movement.

The event will be live streamed. Everyone is welcome!

How does the pushback on the LGBTQI+ movement appear? How can we support the fight to equal rights? Is Iceland a queer paradise? How can we adopt a gender neutral language? What is beautiful about queerness? What challenges do queer parents face? Svandís and Bjarni discuss these questions and more, and viewers can also submit questions during the event, by posting a comment to the event on Facebook.

This event is organised by the Forum of Equality Officers at the Icelandic universities.You can order sign language interpretation for Gender Equality Days events by e-mailing to
