Many international sections participated, including other Pride festivals from different parts of the world, much thanks to the fact that this year is just a EuroPride year in Stockholm.
Politicians also paraded, and among others, the prime minister Stefan Löven and minister-colleagues participated, as well as party leaders from seven different parliamentary parties. A number of authorities, such as Sida, the Police and the Armed Forces also participated.
In EuroPride Parade Stockholm, festive squads were mixed with important messages. RSFL‘s recurring campaign in the parade «Marching for those who can’t» was received with huge applause by the audience. The campaign draws attention to the people around the world who, because of oppression, are not able to join the parade.
Several commercial actors participated, like cities and municipalities, associations, all our fantastic partners and smaller sections organised by private persons.
Another appreciated feature was the airline roll that Jonas Gardell had organised and was seen flying over the city with the text «unconditional love».
