Experienced Discrimination?

RFSL

There have recently been some disappointing news about discrimination and harassment at Fyrishov:

We find these reports deeply concerning. Things like this should not be happening, especially at public facilities. We have talked to Christian Abi-Khalil, who brought the case at Fyrishov forward, and agree that other cases like these need to be brought to light and dealt with. His report shows that pervasive and queerphobia is still pervasive in our society.

We’re looking for stories of similar experiences of harassment, discrimination, queerphobia and other cases of poor treatment in the healthcare, sports arenas, schools, social services and other parts of Uppsala’s public sector.
