NANCYBOYS AND MACHO VIKINGS (Thursday & Friday 5-6 August)
Join us for an exciting, enlightening and funny tour through the Vikings attitude towards homosexuality and masculinity.
In the first half of the guided tour, we take examples from the language, laws and culture to take a look at masculinity and femininity, bottomshaming and gay panic. We cover some of the basics of Viking culture and compare it with other cultures and periods in Swedish history.
In the second part, we cover Norse mythology and genderbending Loke; Asgårds alpha male, Oden–not as straight as thought and Tor who once did a drag show for the giant Trym.
We will learn about sejd–the magic that warlocks and witches practiced and its connection to weaving, goddess Freja and womanhood. The Shield Maidens really existed, and there is still a controversy today.
Tour in Swedish or English depending on the group. One hour.
WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING DURING PRIDE
