Below are the words of our Danish Lesbian Dictionary that we will expand in new editions. If you know any more, please, contact us. But first some information about the language and where it is spoken.
Danish is a Scandinavian language of the Indo-European family. It is spoken by about six million people, and is the official language of the Kingdom of Denmark, and co-official in Greenland and the Faroe Islands (both Danish territories) and also taught in schools in Iceland.
Denmark is one of the most advanced countries in the world in terms of sexual diversity, having legalized homosexuality in 1933 and excelling in all comparisons. Equal access to civil unions and marriage, homoparental adoption, equal access to assisted fertilization techniques, protection against discrimination are some of its characteristics and, surprisingly, in 1997 the bishops of Denmark reached an agreement to bless homosexual couples. It is not strange, therefore, that the first LGBT association, the Denmark National Association of Gays and Lesbians, was created in 1948.
The situation in Greenland and the Faroe Islands is different, since these issues are legislated by their own institutions.
