Sweden's Stars Embrace Gay Pride

Stockholm Pride
Stockholm Pride

This year has been an explosive year for the gay rights movement, with sweeping victories ranging from France to the United States and Sweden's stars are embracing the wave of elation in Stockholm as the nation's LGBT community comes out of the woodworks to put on a celebration the likes of which will not be seen for many years to come.

Sweden's capital will be bursting at the seams with eurostars in August, as a cornucopia of former participants join in the fun at Stockholm Pride.

Familiar faces, old and new, will be filling the bill on the classic Thursday evening programme on August 1st, when Stockholm's streets start to party. From the 2013 contest, punters can bop to performances from winner Emmelie de Forest (Denmark), Margaret Berger (Norway), Ryan Dolan (Ireland), Roberto Bellarosa (Belgium) and Krista Siegfrigs (Finland). Additionally, followers of Melodifestivalen will be able to enjoy live appearances from Sean Banan and Anton Ewald, amongst others.
