This is a country after all that allows same-sex marriage, gay adoption and has government ministers and opposition leaders walking in the pride parade each year. What is there left to fight for?
Anders Öhrman is editor in chief for the biggest lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer publication in Sweden, QX. He tells Radio Sweden Pride is an opportunity for those who have just come out of the closet to get to know all sides of the LGBTQ community.
He adds that this year's festival will be influenced by recent law changes in neighbouring Russia, banning "gay propaganda".
"You will hear about Russia in all the speeches", he says, "and there will be a lot going on about Russia, including something outside the Russian embassy tomorrow."
