#YouAreIncluded is a powerful, all-encompassing statement that whatever your sexuality, gender identity, race, religion, appearance, economic status, nationality, refugee status, health, HIV status – or any other factor – You Are Included at Copenhagen 2021.
The theme has been central to our work throughout our planning for this global mega-event. We don’t just oppose discrimination, we stand against it and we call it out. We’re placing Denmark and Sweden’s high status for pro-LGBTI+ and anti-discrimination legislation on a pedestal and we’re showing the world what true inclusion looks like.
Of course, we know our countries aren’t perfect, and we’ll use the Copenhagen 2021 platform to campaign for further changes, and to give the stage to those who are advocating for improvement. And we can’t guarantee that every space is ‘safe’, but we are doing all we can to ensure they are safer.
We want to know what #YouAreIncluded means to you. What makes you feel truly included? When was the first time you felt really included? Or have you never experienced real inclusion? Tell us on social media by using the #YouAreIncluded hashtag.
And tell us what you think of our program. Have we missed something that could make you feel even more included? Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
