13 Things Not To Say To Your Lesbian Friend – Diversity & Equality in 2014

Hello friends! I hope that everyone had lovely holidays and a wonderful first few days of 2014. I thought I’d start off the New Year by sharing this funny article I came across (admittedly on Cosmo – yes, I read Cosmo). I liked it because: 1. it’s funny 2. it addresses taboo stuff that people don’t like to talk about, like ingrained heteronorms etc. 3. it’s a cool way to think about being more wordly and less ignorant as we all move into 2014: the year of embracing the coolness of differences!

Here it is, enjoy!

Stockholm sizzles with Pride!

Practically all of Stockholm showed up this Saturday, August 3, 2013, to support and celebrate Sweden’s LGBTQIA community. According to Stockholm Pride, the parade’s organizers, this year’s Pride Parade was the biggest ever, with 60,000 participants and 600,000 spectators. (Stockholm Pride)  Considering that Stockholm city has around 850,000 inhabitants downtown, it’s no wonder that it felt like all of Stockholm was there!

My favorite part was the ”Proud Parents of homosexual, bisexual and transgender children” group. It was touching to see so many parents supporting their gay, bi and trans children. When they walked by us in KungstrĂ€dgĂ„rden, the crowd absolutely erupted into cheers and whistles. They were by far the most popular group in our viewing area. This group is organized through RFSL, and you can read more about them here.

Having just gotten back to Stockholm from vacation in the US, this was a great way to start August. It’s exciting to see so many people come out and celebrate in the name of respect and inclusion. Good work Stockholm in supporting LGBTQIA rights!
