Swe­den le­galised gay mar­riage back in 2009 and Stock­holm has long been the cen­tre of Scan­di­navia’s gay his­tory. To­day, the city’s gay scene is pretty much in­te­grated through­out. Sö­der­malm serves as the hip­ster hotspot for Stock­holm, home to a mix of un­of­fi­cial gay bars and hang­outs. Visit dur­ing Stock­holm Pride and you’ll find rain­bow pride flags adorn­ing ev­ery pub­lic bus, 7-11 con­ve­nience store and al­most all shops.
