In 2020 a lot of the Stockholm Pride celebrations took place online, but at Djurgården several special exhibitions and shows were set up during the week to celebrate love. Now we look forward to the day we can celebrate Stockholm Pride together IRL again, hopefully in 2021.

Baltic Sea Science Center
Did you know that the male pipefish carries and gives birth to the babies? During Pride Week (27th July-2nd August), visitors had the chance to learn all about love under the sea with a guided tour from one of the Science Center’s aquarists.
The Viking Museum
The Viking Museum put on an exciting, enlightening and funny tour through the Vikings’ attitude towards homosexuality and masculinity.
ABBA The Museum
ABBA The Museum had a special Pride ticket offer on, where you could celebrate love and go 2 for the price of 1! It meant visitors could bring a friend or a loved one and experience the story of ABBA.
The museum even had special Pride opening hours.
Cirkus & Pop House
Cirkus & Pop House put on an evening filled with humour, dance, spex and mischief, as well as the world-famous ‘Heel Race’ competition (who really goes best in high heels?) The evening’s Drag Queens were Becky, Miss Listerine and “Man who imitates women”.
Stockholm Pride Parade
Pride 2020 was particularly special as Sweden’s Crown Princess Victoria opened the celebrations – the first time a national monarch has officiated a Pride festival.
The Stockholm Pride Parade was streamed via the Stockholm Pride website and their social media channels. The parade took place on Saturday 1st August 2020, 12:00-14:00.
