The largest Pride festival in the Nordic countries, Stockholm Pride pulls in thousands of revellers from the LGBT community in Europe and beyond.
Things get going in Stockholm, with museums and nightclubs across the city getting involved in the big launch. In the following days, events, workshops and seminars will take place across the city, not least at Pride Park and Pride House. Top acts performing this year include The Weather Girls, Village People, Pussy Riot and Sporty Spice (Spice girl Mel C) with a cabaret drag show.
The celebrations culminate in a massive parade through Stockholm city centre on Saturday 3rd August. Starting at 1pm, the parade ends up in Pride Park Östermalms IP. Along with the other events taking place, the parade is expected to attract around half a million spectators (no small number in a city of around a million people).
