Silvana Imam voted "Homo of the year"

Abba star Anni-Frid Lyngstad Reuss and Eurovision winner Loreen were among the guests as the annual Gaygala was held in Stockholm Monday night.

"Homo of the year" was hip-hop artist Silvana Imam, while the "Hetero of the year" award was given to the chairman of Kiruna Ice Hockey Club, Johan Köhler. The team changed their strip last season to include the rainbow flag, to fight against homophobia in the sporting world, in what they call " the most laddish sport in the most laddish city in Sweden". They also won the "Keep up the good work" award.

Other winners in the annual event, organised by the LGBT magazine QX and voted on by its readers, were "Artist of the year", Alcazar, and "Best moment of the year" went to drag queen Conchita Wurst's victory at the Eurovision Song Contest, and her "Rise Like A Phoenix" was also voted "Best foreign song of the year".
