A meeting place, where everyone is welcome.

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. I moved to Zealand back in '99, where I have lived for 15 years in Frederiksberg, but now I live in Roskilde.

Throughout my working life, I have made my way in various industries, where 20 years have been spent as a stableman & trotting trainer. I am - on the basis of my working life across several industries and all kinds of people - very socially minded, which is why I have become interested in being the day-to-day manager at Café Knud, where everyone is welcome.

I´m looking forward to be meeting you all, customers, business partners & friends at Kafé Knud.

I hope and believe I´m able to bring new life and ideas into the café.

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.
