Norway: Horror on Oslo Pride Day

Oslo PrideIn the early hours of the morning before Norway’s Pride celebrations in Oslo, a lone gunman took to the streets of the capital and shot at random. The attack occurred in central Oslo’s packed nightlife district, including iconic gay bar The London Pub. The attack lasted only minutes but left two members of the LGBTIQ community dead and more than 20 other people injured.

Pride events were cancelled nationally at the request of police while they investigated if other attacks could follow. Fortunately they did not. However this did not prevent thousands of Norwegians taking to the streets in a march of solidarity. In the middle of the confusion were the organisers of Oslo Pride.

Larss Arnesen, Vice Chair of Oslo Pride, joined us to explain what happened then and since.
