Stockholm pride is a colorful 4 day event which takes place during the warm months of July and August.
The main parade takes over the entire city attracting everyone from the prime minister to sports teams, families, activist groups and lots of incredibly attractive Swedes.
The Parade starts from Mariatorget, passing Slussen continuing on via Skeppsbron – Kungsträdgårdsgatan – Hamngatan – Sergels torg – Sveavägen – Kungsgatan – Stureplan – Sturegatan, and finishes at Östermalms IP.he number of proud and glamorous participants usually count to up to 60 000 individuals, and a large number of carriages and decorated vehicles attend each year.
The parade gathers an audience of approximately 600 000 supportive spectators, with many making it an all-day event arriving hours in advance with their picnic baskets, to get the best “seats”.
Over 4 days the Pride Park takes place in the heart of Stockholm at Östermalms. The Pride Park is the oasis and the meeting place in the middle of the action.Mixing clowns with opera singers, up-coming stars next to world famous artists.
Pride Park is the place where you meet new and old friends, hang out, watch art, listen to writers and artists. The nights are filled with sparkling colour and sound, and you will never want to leave.
The Scandinavians are always on the cutting edge of gay rights and acceptance for all. With this in mind they have created the “Kinky Quarters”: a specific area with BDSM, fetishism, and other sub-cultures that common people call kinky. It is be a meeting place for both the initiated, and the curious, to talk, shop, and get to know more about everything associated with kinkster life.
