A two-year-long study about queer rights in Europe was concluded by the European Union’s Commissioner for Human Rights. The study did not only analyse the different laws concerning the queer folks in all member states of the European Union but also includes surveys in which European citizens where askes about their opinions regarding queer topics. The map below, for example, show on a scale from 1 to 10 how comfortable people feel with having a gay neighbour:
The same three countries—Sweden, The Netherlands and Denmark– were also giving the highest approval rates when asked about their support for same sex marriage and adoption by same sex couples. It’s probably no coincidence that those three countries also happen to be among the world’s happiest countries (and the most democratic. And the ones with the most press freedom. And the least corruption).

"From the moment you are born, you start to die."
So says Pierre Anthon when he decides that there is no meaning to life, leaves the classroom, climbs a plum tree, and stays there. His friends and classmates cannot get him to come down, not even by pelting him with rocks. So to prove to him that there is a meaning to life, they set out to build a heap of meaning in an abandoned sawmill.
But it soon becomes obvious that each person cannot give up what is most meaningful, so they begin to decide for one another what the others must give up. The pile is started with a lifetime’s collection of Dungeons & Dragons books, a fishing rod, a pair of green sandals, a pet hamster – but then, as each demand becomes more extreme, things start taking a very morbid twist, and the kids become ever more desperate to get Pierre Anthon down. And what if, after all these sacrifices, the pile is not meaningful enough?
Kim is an attractive and well-liked 15-year-old Danish boy with a rather ordinary life. He likes to drink beer and party with his friends. School is a bore. His parents are divorced and his mother doesn’t make much money. She nags at him, frustrated that he wants to go out all the time, and that he doesn’t apply himself or take responsibility. Suddenly Kim finds himself taken hostage by bank robbers, along with Marianne.
After a very pleasant captivity, during which they play Monopoly with their captors, they escape into the countryside. The two consummate their first love and have a number of delightful adventures but eventually must return to their everyday lives, only to find that they are headline news. Måske ku’ vi (Could We Maybe) is a teenage coming-of-age story from the Writer & Director of Du Er Ikke Alene (You Are Not Alone).
