Iceland Airwaves 2015 Radio Documentary Preview: LGBT School Funding in Iceland

IMG_2531 Stay tuned right here for our Iceland Airwaves 2015 final radio documentary, which will air at noon CT on Saturday, January 9th and during our encore presentation on Sunday, January 10th at 7 p.m. CT on WCRX-FM 88.1 in Chicago (live stream here). In the meantime, check out a teaser from one of the cultural stories the students culled at Airwaves and produced below for the final radio documentary. Check out previews, reviews and more on our Iceland Airwaves 2015 home page.

Coming soon is a story on Iceland’s LGBT rights association Samtökin ’78 making strides in LGBT issues, much like in the U.S. where marriage equality was legalized throughout the country on June 26, 2015. Marriage equality has been in Iceland since 2010, and recently they’ve added LGBT education to Reykjavík schools by a renewed contract that includes LGBT education in school municipalities.

Auður Magndis is the director of Samtökin ’78. Here’s a preview where she talked about the acceptance and revamping of this education contract.
