I took my dad to pride today. After asking him and saying what itt might entail, I made him a free dad hugs sign:
While walking there, a lot of people pointed at him and said it was a cute idea. They were right.
My (and his) personal highlights were:
A guy hugging him and saying something in Ukrainian (bc of the flag, probably)
Someone asking him if they can call him "daddy" (I had to explain to him why I started laughing. He now knows.)
Someone giving him a rose
Someone kissing him on the cheeck
A lot of people seeing me standing around awkwardly while there was a line forming in front of him and hugging me too
A guy my dad's age hugging him with tears in his eyes
A kid my age shouting "I don't have a father!", Running towards and almost tackling him
A guy in a fetish-related dog mask hugging him and clinging to him like a lifeline
Two children between eight and ten initiating a group hug with him and giggling the entire time
Everyone thanking him afterwards and a lot of people saying he gives the best hugs in the world. One guy said he'd never been hugged like that before
This guy in a moving lorry shouting and making the lorry stop driving to get a hug from my dad:
My dad said that the majority of people hugging him were either older (25-60) queer men or younger (15-25) trans people. He really loved the experience and felt like a lot of the people, especially the older guys really needed it.
Anyway we're definitely doing this again next year

Mads Mikkelsen at the Comic Con Stuttgart, November 26, 2022
I took these pictures. Please don’t repost without asking in advance and credit, thank you!.
Description: These pictures show Mads Mikkelsen standing in the top right corner of the conference room of the trade fair Stuttgart. They are al close up photos. He rests his elbow on a round table while he talks to the participants of the meet and greet. In the first picture he takes a sip from a coke bottle. In the second picture, he has his left hand wrapped around the bottle. His right hand clutches a white box, a gift. In the third photo, he has his hands clasped together in front of his body.
“Is it already Sunday?”, Buchfink asked. And then, he decided that all he wanted to do was be lazy for the rest of the day.
