Morten, in his own words: ” In my personal experience dealing with love, life, and relationships is a bigger challenge than coming out, supposedly because I live in a part of the world with a more relaxed attitude towards sexual and gendered minorities.
Fighting for sexual and gender identity rights is also important here. However, the activism performed too often risks to reproduce LGBT-people as poor creatures and victims of evil discriminators.
Instead of opposing each other, we should maybe build on the similarities in the experiences and challenges in our lives, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. The ‘straight’ and ‘normal’ life is rarely so close to ‘normality’ as we are told. I do very often have more in common with heterosexual people than with people from the LGBT community, but I consider myself as an ambassador to my way of living in what I say and what I do each time I am together with heterosexual people.”
