The King of Norway on who Norwegians are

"Norwegians are girls that love girls

Boys that love boys

And boys and girls that love each other"

- HM King Harald, The King of Norway (1st September 2016)


In my first social guidebook

I discussed how genders are equal

How women and men can have the same role in society

That kids are raised so that they do not see different roles for different genders

These two illustrations are absolutely normal

And representative of the Norwegian society


And so are these ones

Normal and representative of the Norwegian society

And the Canadian society for that matter

We Canadians in Norway have a great role model

Our Ambassador

He came with his husband

They were received by the King

And welcomed by the society

As a married couple

With all the rights and merits of a married couple
