You are of course right. I thought it's Tuesday today.
You know, getting old...

Mary was today a part of paying tribute to one of the society's earlier so vulnerable groups. The homosexual. Today it's 25 years ago Denmark was again a leading country in the freedom of homosexuals.

Among the invited guests were among other travel our well-known travel King Stig Elling and his husband of 24 years, Steen Andersen and the United States ambassador, Rufus Gifford, who also is declared homosexual, together with his partner.

Bt.dk had a talk with Stig Elling about the importance of Crown Princess Mary had agreed to pay tribute to the gay 'silver anniversary' by her mere presence.

- It means reallymuch, because she is so sympathetic. She also manifests this in a good way by accrediting it. That, I think, are big of her, because it's still needed, says Stig Elling to bt.dk.

He and Steen Andersen also had a little chat with the Crown Princess, where Mary said she was very pleased to attend the opening of the exhibition.

- It's the new royal family we see here(*). Both the Crown Princess and Crown Prince is much more open - shall we say in a different way - than our talented Queen are. I think it is very positive, says Stig Elling.

BT noted that Mary didn't reached to talk to the press because she spent all the time talking to guests and participated willingly in several private photos.

----

(*) Something we hear again and again from people. Queen Margrethe is popular, but Frederik and Mary are about to create a more open and modern Royal House.

Mary also met the head of the National Association for homosexual, bisexual and transgender people in Norway, Bård Nylund.

About Mary, who he describes as having a warm heart says:
- I experienced Mary as a very attentive person. Mary are very up to date on what is happening in the world, as in Russia and Uganda. It's a genuie commitment.

Also Norway's Mette-Marit and Sweden's Victoria has previously demonstrated their support for homosexuals.

- It's a great privilege to live in Scandinavia where we have three so modern Crown Princesses, says Nylund to Seoghør.no.

Thanks for all the pics and articles.

IMO let's make one thing absolutely clear!
I think Stig Elling is unfair.
QMII was very much in the absolute front in regards to the treatment and acceptance of homosexuals - and she was so years before Mary even arrived in DK.

QMII was among the very first, if not the very first, monarchs who invited a homosexual minister's partner (I believe that was just before registered partnership was legal here in DK) to a gala dinner. The press didn't write that much about it back then, because a ministers (legal) sexual life was considered a private matter, but it did cause some attention also abroad.
(Including a gay-bashing reverend - of a sort - in USA, who predicted it would result in DK being punished by God. You can actually still find his rantings on the Net).

SO while M&F are very openly tolerant against homosexuals, several of their best friends are homosexuals, so is QMII. - She is just not standing on her head showing how tolerant she is. - And why should she?

IMO we have long since reached the point here in DK where if someone stands up and say "I'm gay", a typical reaction could be: "Yeah? And I should care because...? So what? Sit down and shut up".
In other words: don't expect people to clap their little hands if someone "comes out", that bridge is long crossed.

It's great that Mary attends the jubilee of Registered Partnership, because that was a good thing and worth celebrating. But to me personally homsexuality and married (and divorced) homosexuals is just a part of the normal picture and I don't care.
- And that's pretty much a success, eh?

That could be one of several - if I were to make a list, his name would probably be on it. There is one in particular who, in my opinion, does not advance the cause of Christianity, but instead turns people away.

This next part is for information only - I am not evangelizing: in the Lutheran church (which is the prevalent church in Scandinavia) we are taught that there is no big sin or small sin - it's all sin. So we are all sinners.

I really think the acceptance of homosexuals is a generational thing. In 50 years, people are going to wonder what all the fuss was about.

Sorry mods - I strayed off topic. If you choose to delete this, I'll understand.

Here's a long video: (After some interviews Mary appears again at 05.43)
Author Bjarne Henrik Lundis who has published the book "Partnership. Gay marriage for 25 years" had the opportunity to have a longer conversation with Mary and here she told among other things that she had gay friends and that she had been at a gay bar

It is refreshing when people can stand up for what they believe and not be judged. Well done Mary & Denmark for not judging.

Daily Mail continue their coverage of Mary, here in regards to the Registered Partnership anniversary: Crown Princess Mary of Denmark steps out in classic grey frock while supporting her country's long history of same-sex marriage | Daily Mail Online

And wouldn't you know. Another article by Daily Mail. This time about the 200th anniversary for compulsory schooling: Princess Mary tours Denmark playground with groups of giggling schoolkids | Daily Mail Online

- Why oh why do English and American papers use headlines and link-titles like "Denmark playground" or worse: "Turkey president"?? Do they think their readers are ignorant? Or are they just sloppy?
