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!
