Mary will present the award at the Danish Rainbow Award, which takes place the 25th April.

https://www.bt.dk/royale/mary-skrive...ger-ved-saadan

At the same time Danish Rainbow Award will celebrate it's tenth anniversary.

As you can guess the award is presented to those who work for LGBT rights.
It will be the first time a DRF member takes part in something like that.

Mary is not a DRF pioneer however, in the respect. That is QMII who years ago invited a minister's spouse to an official dinner. The minister was as such officially "outed" that way. Because the press knew perfectly well that the minister was gay and living with another man, but didn't write about since it was a private matter.
That was before registered partnerships let alone same sex marriages were legal here in DK.

There were written a few lines about it, but AFAIR no one battered an eye lid. The minister didn't mind being accidentally "outed" that way, after all it was a pretty big stamp of approval!

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #15, 2018.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

Mary recently went to the OECD Global Forum on Development in Paris.
The forum took place at Chateau de la Muette, and Mary started the day with a meeting with the general secretary for OECD, Angel Gurria, before giving a speech, really on behalf of Denmark and the Danish government where she said:
"For way too long decisions have made and political strategies been formed without involving women and the young. We know that the most efficient methods to kick start the economic development is to reduce poverty and create sustainable societies all over the world is by strengthening the opportunities for women and girls."

In fact Mary arrived the day before and attended a dinner with the Danish ambassador to OECD, Klavs A. Holm. - Presumably to discuss the final details and get a little insider briefing.

- It is as you hardly the first time Mary is giving a speech in a major international forum. It is very clear to me that various Danish governments are very pleased with Mary and not least her skill in delivering speeches, (especially in English) and she has a higher international profile than practically any minister. Apart from that Mary has been around much longer than any Danish leading politician within these subjects, so her contacts and network are very valuable.
As since we have a Crown Princess with a clear talent, why not use it?

Anyway, here is this weeks BB for your viewing pleasure:

Early yesterday morning, Crown Princess Mary attends at a ceremony at Kastellet in Copenhagen on the occasion of Anzac Day 2018.
At the ceremony, the attendants of the Australians and New Zealanders who lost their lives during World War I were reminded.

Thanks both of you.

And here is a BB video: https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...y=minik+rosing

I see it wasn't BB's Henrik Salling who covered the event, he is gay. But perhaps he attended or covered the event as a whole?
Henrik Salling usually cover J&M BTW.

That's a nice touch.

I don't recall ANZAC Day being remembered here in DK until very recently and certainly not before Mary became CP.
After all DK, as a country, was not involved in WWI.

I wonder if the court has had a hand with this? I should imagine Mary would like to commemorate a day that has significant meaning for her.
And from a Danish view point there is absolutely no harm in honoring our allies. New Zealand, Australia, Britain, France and Turkey as well, being our current allies.
And since there are a considerable number of people from these countries living here in DK, I hope and believe they appreciate it as well.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #17, 2018.
Written by Ulrik Ulriksen.

Recently Mary opened the Miniverse at the Experimentarium in Copenhagen. This is DK's first active science universe aimed specifically at children in the kindergarten age.
That means the children play their way through various natural-science fields. One of them being basically the life and trials of a mole. In order to fit in Mary donned a vest with digging feet, just like a real mole, and she along with some children moved around in the borrows and tried to avoid being eaten by the fox.

The manager for the Experimentarium, Kim Gladstone Herlev, said: "Small children are born scientists. Each new day they go exploring and learn something new by playing. In the Miniverse they can experiment their way to new experiences through play which are natural to them."

At the molehill where Mary played the children learn about the foodchain and who is at the bottom...

When Mary left she spoke for a while to a number of children from a school with pupils who have multiple handicaps.

(You can find the scans in the Roskilde Cathedral thread)



Follow up on ANZAC Day here in DK yesterday.

It was a dawn service, taking place at 05.30 at the memorial for fallen Allied soldiers at Kastellet in Copenhagen.
You can see the schedule here: ANZAC Day 2018


- (From memory) The landing of Australian and New Zealand troops at Gallipoli (as well as British and French troops) took place on this day at dawn in 1915.
Due to various mix ups, poor communication, lack of clear orders, troops being off loaded at the wrong beach, the allied troops did not move forward or did not move forward fast enough before ad hoc Turkish units managed to move in and set up temporary defensive positions, effectively stopping the Gallipoli campaign in its tracks.
After months of terrible suffering and horrific casualties the Allied forces were extracted from Gallipoli in late 1915.
The Gallipoli campaign came about as a result of Turkey joining the Axis coalition, as such much needed French and British supplies to Russia could no longer be shipped through the Dardanelles, the strait that connects the Mediterranean with the Black Sea.
Initially a combined French and British fleet attempted to blast their way through the Dardanelles, but mines and fire from Turkish forts resulted in the loss of several battleships.
Instead it was decided to land troops and take the forts from land and from behind. Hence the landings at Gallipoli.
That failed, but no one can point a finger at the soldiers on both sides who suffered atrocious conditions - insufferable heat, rampant disease, lack of adequate water, a true plague of flies and of course the fighting, including constant shelling and sniping.

Mary also honored ANZAC Day in 2015, also at Kastellet: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-G4QWe0Apum...RROLD%2B1a.jpg
Being the 100th anniversary of the landing, this took place later in the day and was a much lager event than this year.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #18, 2018.
Written by Marianne Singer.

Recently Mary attended the tenth anniversary of the Danish Rainbow Awards show in Copenhagen.
While the DRF for many years has shown acceptance and support for the LGBT community, this was the first time a DRF member attended this show.

Here Mary presented the award to LGBT Denmark.

It was to put it mildly a flashy show! When Mary was labelled "The most beautiful crown jewel of the DRF", by the hosts, to loud cheers from the audience, Mary retorted when she began her speech: "Just a little thing: I think I've met someone with a larger wardrobe than mine!" - Directed at one of the hosts, drag queen Tinus.

In her speech Mary said: "We must stand united in order to refuse all forms of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. and build up a world, where all are accepted an recognized for who they are and where all can participate fully in the community on equal terms."

Yes, there are sometimes perks being a conscript.

These two are signalmen, a fifer and a drummer. And they are conscripts and not a part of the Royal Lifeguard Regeiment's Music Corps, who are professional musicians employed by the Ministry of Defense.

PET is with Mary as well.

I recognize the stern looking female officer walking to the right of Mary. - I have a feeling she chew bricks rather than candy.
Her shoes are not exactly feminine either, presumably because they contain an assault rifle, ready for instant assembly.
In fact I know from sources, she use barbed wire when she floss her teeth.
Did I tell you she juggles skulls in her spare time? Made from granite, she chipped with her fingers.
