Last week-end we had Stockholm Pride. It’s usually good fun and this year was no exception. The weather was great and it’s estimated that some 600000 people participated in the parade in one way or another. Mostly as spectators of course. Not a bad turnout given that greater Stockholm has some 2.2 million inhabitants. All sorts go in the parade; various HBTQ groups, political parties, companies, and God only knows what. The political side has low entertainment value – think political rally and stale rhetoric – but the rest is mostly good fun.
