Mohan Verstegen – Queer warrior in Defense

Mohan VerstegenThe image of employees of the Ministry of Defense seems to be carved in stone: a masculine man with a white skin color, and a little bit nationalist. In addition, military staff are mainly talked about by other but the men and women who work for our armed forces hardly speak for themselves. Mohan Verstegen does however speak out. As an outspoken member of the queer movement and because of his Indian origin, he does not meet any of the stereotypes of the military. Mohan not only fights for our country, but also for more inclusive armed forces. In this exhibition he shows how he hopes the military of the future will look.
