General Manager

Max is the general manager of Kafe Knud (Since 15th of May 2023)

My name is Max Johansen. I am 51 years old and grew up in North Jutland and today I live in Roskilde.

Throughout my working life, I have made my way in various industries. For 20 years I was working as a stableman & trotting trainer. On the basis of my working life across several industries and all kinds of people, I find myself very socially minded, which is why I have become interested in being the day-to-day manager at Kafe Knud.

I look forward to meeting you all, guests, business partners & friends at Kafe Knud.

Hopefully I will able to bring new life and ideas into Kafe Knud.

About Kafe Knud

Kafe Knud is a meeting place that was founded on 4 May 1992 after the social worker Knud Josefsen, who died of AIDS in 1991.


He was an active debater in the media about the involvement of HIV-infected and AIDS patients in their own treatment, and an initiator of the concept of user groups where patients make demands on their treating physicians and nurses. Kafe Knud is today a meeting place for HIV-positive people and their relatives, but also for others who sympathize with HIV-positive people.
