This is Doris Pollas, the cofounder of the organisation now known as lgbt+ Denmark which by being founded in 1948 is one of the oldest if not the oldest queer organisation in the world.
Doris lived in a farm in Jutland as a child. She was always butch and figured out she was a lesbian in her teens. When she heard about a club in copenhagen where boys kissed boys and girls kissed girls she went just some months after and it was through that club she started a paper connecting queer people all up to seventies and co founded lgbt+ Denmark.
She is now 97 year and wishes for every queer person to have an as loving and accepting family as she did.
I don’t see a lot of older gays from my country, so learning about Doris, a masc lesbian, was really nice.
Oh how I love Copenhagen. It feels really great to be in a new place and not feel like I have to do anything. Normally you visit a new place for a few days and you're just rushing to see everything before you get back, but now that I'm here for a half a year there's no rush to do anything. And I love it. I spent hours reading in this beautiful little garden in one of the parks here. I've got a feeling that this will become one of my favourite spots.
Frankly it’s disgusting that the Denmark team had to form a circle around their teammate to prevent cameras from poking all over him, and the fact that national broadcasts showed his distraught wife after the collapse.
As sports fans we complain all the time about how broadcasts don’t show great coverage of plays, and how we miss things because cameras won’t focus on the important stuff and won’t pick it up.
How can they leave out parts of the game, what we actually watch for, but the moment a player collapses on a field and his wife is freaking out, rightfully so, suddenly that needs to be broadcast for the whole world to see.
Sports culture, specifically the injury aspect, is disgusting.
Christian Eriksen and his wife deserve respect during this time, not this being blasted all over a national broadcast for money. It’s sickening that they’d do that to him, but not surprising in the least.
The media is sickening. The fact that they couldn't have the decency to turn off the camaras the minute they knew things were serious. The fact that they filmed his wife, crying. I just.... how fucking insensitive can you be. His teammates were crying for God's sake and they couldn't even be afraid in peace. No, they had to protect Christian's privacy from vultures like them. Shame on the entire football media. Shame on the broadcasting stations and shame on the news channels that keep replaying this horrible incident. Shame on all of them. This is a man's life we're talking about. Not some sensationalistic headline. Fuck you.
