Stockholm Pride is a major LGBTQ+ festival held annually in the city. It started as a small event in 1998 but has grown significantly and is now the largest pride festival in the Nordic region. The festival celebrates diversity and aims to create a safe space for the LGBTQ+ community. This year's theme is "Celebrate Diversity," highlighting the importance of acceptance and inclusion.
The festival includes various events and activities, such as Pride Park, Pride House, Pride Kinky, Pride Parade, Pride Youth, and Pride Family. Pride House offers workshops and debates, and this year, all program events have free admission. The festival tickets have a higher price this year, but organizers are working to keep it affordable for everyone.
Security is a priority for the festival, with close collaboration with the police. The program includes performances by various artists and drag shows, making it a vibrant and lively celebration. The opening of Pride Park will be inaugurated by the Speaker of the Parliament and a drag duo.
Visitors are encouraged not to miss performances by artists like Agnes and the vibrant atmosphere of Pride House, as well as the spectacular Pride Parade. Stockholm Pride aims to promote unity and acceptance while celebrating the diversity of the LGBTQ+ community.
