Stockholm Pride Parade

There was a brief moment earlier today when the bloke standing next to me and I looked at each other in momentary disbelief. A second later, and we didn’t need to exchange any words, because we both knew we both just seen a man go past us on roller skates wearing nothing but a rainbow […]

Måns Zelmerlöw at Stockholm Pride

The first time I saw Måns Zelmerlöw perform live was at Stockholm Pride in 2008. At the time, I think he really only had one hit song, “Cara Mia”.

Schlagerkväll @ Stockholm Pride

I never really “rated” Sanna Nielsen all that much until I saw her perform this year at the Schlagerkväll at Stockholm Pride. I always thought her performances were a little “wooden”, a little “mediocre” when compared with other schlager greats like Shirley Clamp and Pernilla Wahlgren. But her performances blew me away and she came […]
