World renowed bixexual comedian Margaret Cho, international pop star Agnes, Eurovision stars Jedward, Eric Saade and Ivi Adamou. The list of acts and performances at Stockholm Pride 2012, 31st July to 4th August, goes on and on, and there is more to come…
Margaret Cho, the world renowned bisexual comedian and actress who is best known for her stand-up shows where she criticizes social and political problems, especially those who have different stereotypes about ethnic background and sexuality, will perform at Stockholm Pride.
- This is my first appearance in Stockholm and I am very much looking forward to appearing in front of the LGBTQ community and taking part of the different Pride activities. I have participated in many Pride festivals before, but never in Stockholm. I'm delighted, says Margaret Cho.
One of Sweden's biggest pop stars, Agnes, with the international super hit “Release Me”, will give her only concert of this summer at Stockholm Pride. She will perform her greatest hits and some new songs from her upcoming album.
- I'm so psyched to play at Stockholm Pride. It has been so long since I played in Sweden and it feels great to do the first gig to an audience that supports me so much, says Agnes.
Stockholm Pride and the Eurovision Pop Evening will see performances from Eurovision favorites Jedward, Eric Saade, Ivi Adamou, Ott Lepland and many more.
- The Eurovision Pop Evening will be fantastic! We have a glorious cavalcade of performers this year and have many surprises left to offer the Pride audience, says Alf Kjeller, General Manager of Stockholm Pride.
