Krogerup Højskole, a school situated in Fredensborg municipality in North Zealand, has this year decided to donate the profits from MayBeats, a music festival organized by the school’s students, to the organization ‘Stop Had’ (Stop Hate) and their work to help victims of hate crimes.
On Saturday, 26th May 2012, names like White Pony, Birk Storm, Bottled in England and Mathilde Savery go on stage to MayBeats 2012 at Krogerup Højskole in Humlebæk.
MayBeats is Krogerup Højskole’s non-profit festival and is held every year in May in order to donate money to a charity and this year the school has chosen to support the organization ‘Stop Had’ who works to stop hate crimes and provide support for victims of hate crimes in Denmark through awareness activities and network.
This year’s slogan is “Stop the Hate – Krogerup for Love” and it was also in relation to this theme the school organized a Love Parade on 1th of May where participants marched from Østerport station in Copenhagen to the park, Fælledparken, together with ‘Stop Had’ and an abundance of red heart balloons – all full of love and diversity
»The focus this year is, therefore, as our slogan so nicely puts it, to stop the hate and spread the love. Thus said that there is a need for more tolerance, compassion and charity in a time like this,« says the Krogerup Højskole, who earlier this year held a discussion meeting about gender, tolerance and heteronormativity where LGBT youth participated.
