The Percentage Of Straight Attendees At Stockholm Pride Will Shock You


Stockholm Pride, 2014

Sweden’s University of Gothenburg released the results of a poll they conducted at last year’s Stockholm Pride last year to coincide with their 18th annual Gay Pride Week that started earlier this week.

The data shows that 6 out of 10 participants in the pride parade are women, and, perhaps even more surprising, 4 out of 10 are straight.

The survey also points to the fact that 42% of the revelers were between the ages of 30-49, outnumbering the younger contingent by nearly 7%.

Head of the Stockholm Pride, Mattias Wahlstrom, made sure to clarify to Radio Sweden that he’s encouraged by the data because it shows that the celebrations are for everyone, regardless of sexuality, to come together as one.


Stockholm Pride will conclude this Sunday, August 1.
