  • Summary

    Are you having your period ("lingonveckan") at Borderland? Do you suffer from stomach pain or do you lack sanitary products? Don’t worry; The Lingonberry-girls are here for you!

    Full description of concept

    Not only will we comfort you with massage and a warm water bottles for your belly. We will also provide you with tampons and sanitary pads. And offer you a shot of Vargtass (lingonberry juice and vodka) out of our menstrual cups.

    The Lingonberry-girls go QQQ: Welcome to take part in our face- and body painting workshop (yes, you heard us right).

    The Lingonberry-girls go Juice Bar: Are you 28 years old and still avoiding sex with someone who's menstruating? In the CBT-inspired workshop “Get over it already!” we will practise having penetrative and oral sex with real or fake menstrual blood.

    The Lingonberry-girls will be on duty on and off during the week.

    We welcome Borderlings of all genders to become a Lingonberry-girl!
