Last year's Pride festival focussed heavily on a Swedish law which requires people who legally change sex to be sterilised. The prime minister said he wanted to abolish the law but had his hands tied by his socially conservative partners in the government coalition - the Christian Democrats. That party has now done a U-turn, in part thanks to internal lobbying by key members, including MP Caroline Szyber. She explains why she is at this year's Pride.
