Norway: Culture Minister exposes her breasts during Pride event, receives praise from country’s Prime Minister and event organiser

“I think it’s wonderful that we have a minister who goes ‘all-in’ and is not afraid to put herself forward a little," the Head of Oslo Pride said.

In June this year, the Minister of Culture and Gender Equality in Norway courted controversy for flashing her breasts during the Oslo Pride event. A video of the incident has now gone viral on social media.

The Norwegian legislator, Lubna Jaffery, was awarded the ‘Fag Hag 2024’ award during the event for being a top ‘patron of queers’. Soon after, she lifted her top to expose her breasts.

Jaffery was seen wearing covers over her areola region. The disturbing action of a sitting Minister not only drew praise from the audience but also Norway’s top leadership.

When quizzed about the incident, the 44-year-old Lubna Jaffery emphasised, “I am very grateful to have been named Fag Hag, the main patron of queers, during Oslo Pride this year. This is a great honor…Put yourself out and (do) not take yourself too seriously.”

The organiser of the event, Joakim Aadland, commented on the controversy and remarked that it was the best thing to have happened during the ‘Oslo Pride’ in several years.

“I think it’s wonderful that we have a minister who goes ‘all-in’ and is not afraid to put herself forward a little. I’ve never experienced the applause she received in the ten years we’ve had Pride. So it’s clear that the audience appreciated Lubna’s stunt,” he claimed.

Similarly, Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Store also heaped praise on Lubna Jaffery for her appearance at Oslo Pride. “Lubna is a confident, free and wonderful person who is warmly welcomed at cultural events all over the country,” he was heard saying.
