Debate: Queer immigrants


Tromsø Arctic Pride and Amnesty Northern Norway are hosting a debate about young queer people fleeing their home countries. We will raise issues such as how Norway as a nation welcomes refugees who flee not only their own country ridden by war and distress, but also from a society in which they cannot live their real love.

We will hear the story of a young Syrian man who fled his country to wind up in Norway. Then follows a debate with representatives from Amnesty Norway, local political representatives and representatives from the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration (UDI).

This event will be partly in Norwegian and partly in English and will take place at Student Organization’s café Driv at Storgata 6 on Tuesday November 8th at 7-8:30 pm. Free entrance.
