gay Sweden - The Globetrotter Guys

If you are looking for a beautiful and gay friendly destination in Europe, we highly recommend Sweden. We first visited Stockholm, the capital of gay Sweden, in 2018 on a gay press trip hosted by Stockholm LGBT. We learnt so much about being gay in Sweden – it was an incredibly positive experience!

We wrote all about gay Sweden (specifically Stockholm) in our Gay Guide to Stockholm, make sure you take a look!

But don’t just take our word for it. We are not so naive as to think that as tourists we always gain the full picture. This is why we connected with Swedish gay couple Alex and Marcus to learn what it is like for a gay local in Sweden.

Hi guys, please introduce yourselves!

Hi! My name is Marcus, I am 32 and I come from the small town of Eskilstuna, Sweden. I work in project management and communications.

Hi, my name is Alexander, I am 36 and from Gothenburg, Sweden and I am a huge film critic. We met online 8 years ago and have been married since 2017. We love traveling, cooking, fitness, and throwing theme parties at our place in Stockholm.

Truly, gay Sweden offers so much to LGBTI travellers. Being gay, lesbian or anything in between in this Scandinavian nation has been legal since 1944. And next May, they’ll also be celebrating eight years of equal marriage – so it has long been an open-minded place to visit.

We like to say that it’s a place where narrow streets and expansive landscapes meet open minds. It really is an exciting place to visit for gay people, whether for a city break or longer stay – it has a vibrant and integrated gay scene, with over 30 LGBTI Pride festivals celebrated each year.

Whether you’re an adventure travel enthusiast, or a total foodie, have an eye for great design or appreciate beautiful people, you’ll find that there’s something for you in any part of the country. Considering everything that’s happening in the world, it’s great to be able to take a holiday in a place where you know you’re truly welcome.

Sweden: Europe’s Most Pro-Gay Country?

Author: , June 2nd, 2010

ILGA-Europe – the European Region of the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association – has named Sweden as Europe’s most pro-gay country.

The scale ranked countries based on a point system, with positive points awarded to countries with such benchmarks as legal recognition of same-sex partnerships, anti-discrimination protection, and coverage of homophobia in hate speech and crime legislation. Points are knocked off a country’s score for having legal bans of homosexual acts, unequal ages of consent, and histories of peaceful assembly rights violations.

Sweden, the lovely Scandinavian home of Dag Hammarskjöld, Ingmar Bergman, and Pippi Longstocking, came in on top with a perfect score of ten points.
