On Friday, May the 31th, at 10 pm Gay Kids Norway is opening at Maihaugen. A prominent guest, and a most important part of the Norwegian Gay Kids project, is the actor Stig-Werner Moe. This is his childhood history: “I grew up in Lillehammer. As a kid I lived with my mother and grandparents. My grandfather worked as a caretaker at the Lillehammer City Collection of Paintings. He had an apartment in the museum building and it was quite an adventure to live there. After closing hours I could cycle around, all on my own, on my tricycle enjoying the art collection. You should think I would have grown-up to be a painter – but I didn’t. Have you seen the movie “The Journey to the Christmas Star”? The man playing the evil count - that’s me!!!!”
Welcome to the grand Gay Kids opening at Maihaugen museum in Lillehammer, May the 31th at 10 am. Olemic Tommessen (Høyre) and the actor Stig-Werner Moe (The Journey to the Christmas Star, Blåfjell) are coming, are YOU coming too???
This freshly curated exhibition documents the childhoods of grown-up Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual persons. It promotes visibility and mutual respect for individual choices and different family constellations as a foundation for an open and inclusive society – for all minorities.
