Join Academic Pride in the Stockholm Pride Parade

Don’t miss this summer’s high point – the Stockholm Pride Parade and the Academic Pride pre-parade event held at the Stockholm School of Economics on Saturday, August 5.

Time: Sat 2023-08-05

Location: Norr Mälarstrand

Academic Pride is a collaboration around Stockholm Pride between several of Stockholm’s higher education institutions and their associated student unions. The purpose is to highlight the importance of LGBTQIA+ issues in institutions of higher education, both in research and education as well as inclusive working practices and study environments. Walk in the parade together with staff and students from KTH, Stockholm University, Karolinska Institute, and the Stockholm School of Economics.

The Pride Parade starts on Norr Mälarstrand at 13:00 but you can also join the Academic Pride pre parade event at the Stockholm School of Economics at 10:30. Free vegan wraps and non-alcoholic drinks, t-shirts, flags and face paint will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. If you already have one, bring your Academic Pride t-shirt so were mindful of the environment.
