What is Stockholm Pride:

Started in 1998, the Stockholm Pride week is now the highlight of the year for many gays, lesbians and transgenders. It is the largest event for GLBT in Scandinavia. There are lots of international performers and guests, many activities, events and entertainment. The end of the week is highlighted by the Pride Parade in central Stockholm, with thousands of spectators. This annual event takes place in late July and lasts until early August. (In 2008, the Stockholm Pride was also EuroPride 2008.)

All gays, lesbians, and transgender can find something suitable in Stockholm at this time of year. Select from interesting seminars, debates, workshops, exhibitions, film and theater, other performances, along with music events with international stars and well-known bands.
