Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden visited the RFSL (Riksförbundet for the rights of homosexuals, bisexuals, transgender people, queer and intersex persons) on Wednesday to learn more about the work it does and activities it has for LGBTQ people.
The organisation works to allow LGBTQ people to have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else in society.
Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel received a tour of the offices, learned more about their work and saw an in-depth presentation on the organisation. This also included learning how young trans people are working to get inclusion in sports, as well as what support looks like for the elderly and LGBTQ people.
RFSL, a non-profit, was founded in 1950. There are 36 locations in Sweden with around 7,000 people involved, and it also works internationally.
This was not the only event on Victoria’s agenda on Wednesday. Yesterday evening, the Crown Princess attended a memorial service for those who died in the air disaster in Iran last week. All on board were killed. The plane had 176 passengers, and 17 of those were Swedish citizens.
Today, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel will visit the National Board of Health and Welfare. Later, Victoria will attend a meeting with her father to get information on Sweden’s defence exercises in 2020. In the evening, the King, Queen and Crown Princess Couple will attend an official dinner at Villa Bonnier.
