West Pride Gothenburg usually takes place in June, and is the city's largest genuflection to the local LGBTQ community. The second largest pride in Sweden after Stockholm Pride, this lively gay event offers a series of parties, cultural celebrations, and one incredible gay pride parade to boot.
Due to the global Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak, West Pride is sadly canceled in 2020. See you in 2021!
The following is the event program for 2019. Stay tuned for the 2020 program, coming soon.
For 2019, West Pride will run from June 12 to 16, with the main gay pride parade taking place on Saturday, June 15. The theme of this year's West Pride will focus on Stonewall 50, with different events over the course of five days relating to the development of LGBTQ rights, and the pride movement in general - both on a national and international scale.
Along with the gay pride parade, you can look forward to Pride Festival which will run for the entire duration of West Pride, and Theme Day in Pride House, which will kick off on Sunday, June 16.
