"Helena Bergstöm close to tears during the hyllningskonserten"
"On Saturday appeared SVT2's tribute concert for Rikard Wolff. "
"Jonas Gardell praised his friend for he openly dared to be homosexual in the time when the journalists asked the actress if it was not ”disgusting to kiss another man”. "
"– Rikard chose to be a great gay man."
"The Swedish actor and artist Rikard Wolff died of stage of emphysema in november last year. A few weeks after the announcement, organised his friends a minneskonsert at the Stockholm city theatre. On Saturday showed SVT2 hyllningskonserten. "
"Helena Bergstöm and Björn Kjellman had a hard time keeping back the tears when they led the guests through the evening. "
"It was emotional when Jonas Gardell chose to pay tribute to his friend that he openly stood for that he was gay. On the scene showed Jonas Gardell, an image of Rikard Wolff, together with his first boyfriend, Magnus. "
"– We were so young and in love, that we fought for it. You don't understand this image if one does not understand from the context in which it is taken. "
"Dared to be open, public,"
"the Picture is taken on the homosexual frigörelsedemonstrationen in the Humlegården park in 1980 – or Pride, which is called today. "
" Image is not a private. Rikard and Magnus knew they were photographed. They were in public. They stood open to his love and the whole world. Richard chose to not only be open to private in a time when journalists asked the actress if it was not disgusting to kiss another man. "
"Three years after the picture died Magnus in aids. Sitting on the stage told Jonas Gardell about a time when their friends disappeared, and how it came to dominate them. "
"– First we are born to it, others say we are but since we can feed ourselves if we have the courage, the power, the strength, and so did Richard. He chose to be a brilliant gay man, ended Jonas Gardell. "
