OsloMet researcher Anders Gjesvik and former UiO researcher Hans Wiggo Kristiansen highlight the complex relationship between the gay and the media over the past 80 years. How was it to live under such conditions? Which strategies were chosen in the private sphere and organisationally? How do the gays appear in the media today? After the presentations, Turid Eikvam, a former office manager at UiO and a long-time member of the editorial board of the gay magazine «Løvetann» (Dandelion), will moderate a dialogue between the speakers and the audience.

Note: Please be aware that the speakers will give their presentations in Norwegian.
