In a city as open as Stockholm, there’s never been a need for just one segregated gayborhood. It’s been said that if ever there was a capital designed by gay people for gay people, Stockholm is it. We have had marriage equality for years and even our future queen, the radiant Crown Princess Victoria, recently gave out the award for Gay of the Year.
Stockholm has twice hosted EuroPride and we'll welcome the Eurogames, sporting event, in 2015. Here is our top ten places. Find out more at www.qx.se/english
