Anguteeraq Larssen (17): “My friends already knew and accepted me, before I knew myself that I am gay.”

It is obvious at the first glance that he is standing out. Anguteeraq was always “different”, not even noticing it himself. He was bullied at the public school in his hometown Maniitsoq, some 150km north of Nuuk, but always had his friends (back then and also now mostly females) he could count on. “Then I started to think that being different is uniq…and being normal is just boring.”

For two years he has been studying in the Gymnasium of Nuuk with the focus on “Creativity and Arts” and wants to become a fashion designer.


After finishing the high-school Anguteerag is planning to study in Denmark and doesn’t know if he will come back to Greenland.
