Sometimes we can’t see the trees for the forest.
As always Stockholm Pride was one of the events of the year and in focus in the media all over Sweden. A new venue and a new team. This year I chose to not attend as I have to admit that its lost its affect for me. We all choose to be active and fight for out causes in our own way. And I should know. Having been the chairman of Europride in 98 and the First Stockholm Pride in 99. But now its time to bring attention to the other Pride events that are actually happening in Sweden . The ones that are actually having an affect at the grass roots level. I had the pleasure of attending a newly founded Pride event in Norrtälje this year. Roslags Pride.
Every summer around Sweden there are many such festivals trying to bring attention to the HBTQ needs on a local level. It would be amazing if these Prides could get the support and attention that Stockholm Pride gets.
Next year I’m going to visit a few of them. If anyone has the contact details for them please send them to me.
