Stockholm Pride 2012 is starting today and I’m really happy to be a part of it. It’s Stockholms 15:th festival and the theme of the year is ”Together”. Together as in creating and working for a better place for all us to be in. Not a bad goal is it 😉
Stockholm Pride is created every year by the nonprofit organisation Stockholm Pride and it is one of the biggest happenings in Stockholm. About 500 volunteers from around the country and the world create a happy festival with art, parties, dance, theaters and events. But also a base for different organisations to talk about HBTQ issues in the world and in the swedish society. HBTQ is Homosexual, Bisexual, Transexual, Queer and all the variations in between.
You can find me hosting the Bandlerroom at the Pride House which is Kulturhuset/Stockholms Stadsteater, where there is lots of seminars every day. Todays schedule is:
”Do you have a plan for condoms?”
”RFSLs members meeting”
Obviously I’m going to have an interesting day! I have already been in so many good talks about the modern family, coming out, dealing with non understanding parents, syndroms, Sweden versus other countries views, growing up and dating guys under Germanys porn industry influence, etc. So many different people, each with a story to tell. I’ve been just listening and listening and listening…I love it!
But now I’m gonna try to write about some of the conversations I’ve had, mini interviews with people and also some about the seminars!
On the other site, Mingissiyeva.com, I’ll try to define queer fashion so there will be lots of topics to read about!
So if you want to now what goes down at Stockolm Pride 2012, you can find some here!!
Now I’m off to my first day, YAY!!!!!!
