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.
