12:00–12:45 Rainbow Riots India
India's first openly queer artists in conversation with Swedish artist and activist Petter Wallenberg

After over 150 years of criminalization, all Indians are now free to love, since the British colonial law against same-sex relationships was abolished in India nearly a year ago. It is a time of liberation for the country's LGBTQ people, and at the centre of it all is Swedish artist and activist Petter Wallenberg, founder of the international LGBTQ organization Rainbow Riots. Since two years back he has been in Bombay creating the new album "Rainbow Riots India" in collaboration with India's first openly queer singers and dancers. The project has gained lots of attention in India where the media hailed the first single "Love is Love" as India's first Pride anthem. During Stockholm Pride this year, Wallenberg and his Indian partners perform the music material LIVE, and this will be the first time Indian artists have ever performed on an international Pride scene.

Before this you have the chance to meet the group in an intimate conversation here. In the conversation, members of Dancing Queens, India's first transgender dance group, who are part of the ancient Indian trans-community considered to have divine powers and Tropical Marca, India's first queer rapper who is also a drag queen. The group will talk about the work with Rainbow Riots India but also about life as LGBTQ people in the world's most populous country where same-sex love has just become legal.

"When I came to India two years ago, it was still illegal to be gay. Since then, a revolution has started. Come and meet the pioneers of India’s rainbow revolution” says Petter Wallenberg.

15:00–15:45 Community Healing & Resistance Workshop
With discussion and creative practices, we will explore the connection among healing, resistance, and creativity in our queer and trans communities. Together we will strategise, share, and develop self-care and community healing tactics, tools, and resources. Special attention will be paid to the need for trauma processing for LGBTQ asylum seekers, and a new project being launched at RFSL Stockholm Newcomers will be introduced.
Dr. Winget recently received their Ph.D from Universities of California, Irvine and San Diego where they wrote their thesis, Performing Possibilities: Trans-Healing in Activist Performance. They are interested in utilising performance as a tool for healing, community building, and decolonising, and work particularly with queer and trans communities. They are working on book projects on queer and trans healing as well as queer and trans feminisms in performance. Dr. Winget is now Project Manager RFSL Stockholm to develop and implement programming that promotes mental health for Newcomers.
