Stockholm: Gay and Lesbian
Venice of the North
Stockholm is an excellent gay and lesbian urban holiday destination. Sweden is very forward thinking in terms of sexual equality, especially in the urban areas, and Stockholm is no exception. The annual gay and lesbian pride festival and parade of Stockholm Pride, during late July and early August, is a good symbol of Stockholm’s gay and lesbian-friendly atmosphere. Gay and lesbian-friendly venues include Copacabana, a “queer feminist café” in Södermalm and the Roxy, an attractive and amiable bar near Medborgarplatsen.
