The city of Stockholm is one of the most gay-friendly destinations in Europe. And the municipality supports the event : « Stockholm is known worldwide as an open, welcoming destination. The EuroGames Stockholm event is completely consistent with Stockholm’s aim to be one of Europe’s leading event cities. We are happy and proud to be able to support EuroGames Stockholm, says Regina Kevius, Stockholm’s sports commissioner.
