Travel diaries / Gothenburg II

17/12/2015

On the day I was leaving we were met by sunshine. We decided to visit Världskulturmuseet to see their latest exhibition called Playground. This is the text found on their website: Playground is a playful exhibition about norms, and the right to be one’s true self. You will be asked big important questions: What are norms? Are they good, bad or both? Who makes them, and can you create your own? Through everyday objects, you will meet the world. Objects from Vietnam and Sweden, collected in the now and in the past tell stories about prejudice, gender and love.
I’ve been to Vietnam a few times and I can’t say that I have seen any “evidence” of the LGBT community. This exhibition highlights those people and even though a lot of their stories are difficult to read, it brings me hope of a better and more equal society.
It doesn’t say how long the exhibition will last but I would recommend everyone to visit. DSC01237

Translation: When everything goes to hell its the people who are still standing without blinking, who’s your family.
This couldn’t be more true. The people who accept you for who you are without judging, THEY are your family.
