Fika at Kalmars with SFQ

24 Maj

Time again to meet other queers and allies at the fabulous Sunday Fika at Kalmars nation, 29/5. They use to sell sandwiches, cakes and other tasty stuff. You’ll recognize our tables by the cute little rainbow flags – we’ll be there from 12! ❤

No nation card is needed.

Queer picnic in the park!

18 Maj
Summer is coming!

Whatever you wanna call it (queernic or pic-queer-nic etc etc) this is SFQ’s way of saying: Goodbye studies – hello summer! But before everyone runs off to do their thing, we wanna have a last coze! (Actually you’ll also find queers at the Kalmar Spika the 29/5, event coming soon)

Join us for a queer Sunday picnic in the park! Bring something to nibble on, and maybe a blanket. We’ll try to make ourselves visible with the usual rainbow colours/flags, but we’ll also write in the event on the day to let you know what sweet spot we’ve found!

See you there! 😀


ESC 2016 Viewing party with SFQ

12 Maj



On Saturday as mentioned earlier we will be viewing Eurovision Song Contest finale together, and have now decided that we will go to the viewing at Uplands nation together! (note that it is in the basement pub, upstairs they have a spring beer fest going on )

You’ll find us there a bit before 20:00. Come if you love ESC and almost wish you could be in Sthlm and/or if you just want to laugh with all the fun routines and costumes. Come yourself and bring a friend if you want! See you there for the Eurovision viewing party! 😀

*Note also that a nation card is needed.

Årsmöte/Annual meeting

12 Maj

Hello all, Hej kära SFQ-medlemmar!
Hereby SFQ Uppsala announces the annual meeting 2016.

All our members are welcome, and you can bring other persons who are not members yet but perhaps want to become members. The meeting will be about an hour and afterwards we are going to a pub – those who wants to.

To have the rights to vote for decisions in the annual meeting, you will need to have a membership in 2016. You can of course attend the meeting regardless. If you wish to become a member, please e-mail


Meeting information:
The first priority is to select a new board. You can think about if you would like to become active in the board, we can promise that it is fun! We have meeting about once a month and plan upcoming SFQ-events. There are no obligations how much every board member has to do, so it is completely fine if you want to be a part of the board even if you are not sure how much time you are going to have next year.

We will attach a preliminary meeting agenda, which according to SFQ´s rules has to be in Swedish. During the meeting we can explain things in English. Members have the right to add discussion points to the agenda. Please send these beforehand. It is also possible to add discussion points during the meeting, but then the meeting cannot make decisions.

When the new board is being elected, it is important that we choose (or at least decide on how and when to choose):
-a firmatecknare (is responsible for SFQ´s bank account, signs formal documents, if any. This usually is the same person as the local treasurer, who also applies for grants)
-a local representative (a contact person for the national board)
-a membership-responsible (has access to the membership register and handles membership applications)
-one or two representatives on SFQ´s congress 2016 (who vote(s) in name of SFQ Uppsala)
(it is not necessary to choose four different individuals for these functions)

If you have any questions about what it would entail to join the board or want to help out, feel free to contact via message or write a post here. On request, meeting reports can be attained.

We hope to see you at the annual meeting!

Kind regards,

The board members of SFQ Uppsala
