Cancelled for 2020
Awaiting Dates for 2021
One of the most livable cities in Sweden, Gothenburg is also a proudly working class city with a large working harbor, modern architecture and thriving cultural scene. In similar cities in other parts of the world—think Liverpool or Melbourne—the LGBTQ community has often had to struggle to earn acceptance, blazing a vibrant rainbow trail along the way that has helped create an urban renaissance of sorts. So is the case with Gothenburg, or Göteborg, as the locals call it, and West Pride is the community organization that led the way.
Gothenburg pride will feature some great parties, a series of cultural events and a main parade through the city on the final weekend of the event.
Gay Bars and Restaurants not to miss in Gothenburg
Beebar is Gothenburg’s hetero friendly city centre LGBTQ hotspot, bar and restaurant. Wish You Were Queer – Prom Queens & Working Class Queeros United — that’s what the organisers say about this club that attracts an alternative queer crowd. Popular with locals. The club was held at canal boat Rio Rio over the summer but moves between different locations during the year.
Gretas is Gothenburg’s only permanent gay bar. During Pride this two-floor establishment is heaving. Expect pop tunes, drag acts and a mixed crowd — as well as lots of dancing until the early hours. Gothenburg’s biggest monthly gay club, Club Queer, is held every last Friday of the month.
