Stockholm: An Open and Progressive Scandinavian Capital

Sweden prides itself on being one of the most gay-friendly countries in the world. From the Stockholm Pride parade to organized events throughout the city, there is a strong sense of acceptance in Stockholm. In recent years, Sweden has taken legal steps to ensure the same rights for the LGBTQ community as everyone else.
