About the team:
Sex og Politikk (IPPF Norway) is a non-profit organization working to promote sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), both nationally and internationally. SRHR involves good life quality tied to all parts of one’s sexuality and reproduction, including access to safe health services, birth control and safe abortions. We strive for everyone’s right to access these health services along with bodily autonomy and absence of discrimination and violence. Sexual rights count for all, no matter the sexuality gender identity or gender expression.
The next five years, we seek to cooperate with our sibling organization, Family Planning Association of Malawi (FPAM), to promote their work on the more controversial sexual rights, namely queer rights, and access to safe abortion services. The project aims to improve access to SRHR-information, in addition to improve access to, birth control, safe abortion and other SRHR-health services. Lastly, the project will give health service contributors an opportunity to understand and learn about the substantial SRHR-needs of women, girls, and queer people through a rights-based approach.
Karmaklubb* is an autonomous nomadic queer platform, a space for critical reflection, and celebration. Besides club evenings and nights, the programme consists of open conversations, curatorial work, screenings, artist talks, film production, panels, concerts, performance art, Drag, wine tastings, ale, and much more. Since 2018, Karmaklubb* has realised more than 250 projects on- and offline.
