What’s on in Stockholm: July 24 – 30

What's on in Stockholm: Stockholm Pride & Opera al fresco in Stockholm.


Stockholm Pride 2009

Yes it is that time of year again – when the sober Stockholm streets are turned into a kaleidoscope of the rainbow in a celebration of the city’s LGBT communities.

The festival was established in its current form in 1998 and its burgeoning succes means that Tantolunden on Södermalm will be its base for the last time.

This year’s theme is “hetero” with a focus on how heteronormativity impacts on the daily lives of homosexuals, bisexuals and transgender people.

Music, debate, speeches, demonstrations, seminars and whole lotta partying are what’s on offer.

Price: 700 kronor for the week

Time: Monday July 27th – Sunday August 2nd

Location: Pride Park, Tantolunden; Pride House, Kulturhuset & venues across the city
