3.30 pm - 5 pm: Talks: With Emily Gorecenski: The New White Supremacy in Europe and the US
White supremacy is an ever-evolving ideology of hate that attempts to blend into mainstream society. After experiencing neo-Nazi violence first-hand in her hometown of Charlottesville, Virginia, Emily Gorcenski began to fight back using her skills in research and data, tracking white supremacist crimes across America and diving into the secret underbellies of many white supremacist organizations. She'll discuss a new model for understanding white supremacy not as a single ideology or movement, but as an accumulation point of many forms of intersectional hate... and what we need to understand to fight back.

Fluid Festival: A space to celebrate women, genderqueer and non-binary identies
At Gammel Strand – one of the most beautiful squares in the center of Copenhagen – we will proudly move through a nine-day colorful program of performances, debates, speeches, and installations.
The program will be a representation of women, genderqueer and non-binary identities and embraces, respects and challenges the understanding of gender expression. Focusing on the fluidity of gender expression, sexual orientation and gender identity, Fluid Festival offers up an inclusive space for female-identified, non-conforming and non-binary people.
There will be a daytime political festival with both speakers and international activists and a daily spot, Writers Voice, where writers from around the world share their poetry. As day turns to evening, we will create atmospheric summer evenings with performances, complemented by large lounge areas, dining areas, drinks bars, areas for outdoor plays, six wooden rafts floating in the canal and a ramp down to the water.
The Festival will be an ample opportunity for experiences, meetings, presence, love, celebration – a unique opportunity to be exactly who you are in the safe understanding that #YouAreIncluded.
Fluid Festival has a zero tolerance approach to any kind of discrimination and stigmatization.
