Sex workers Pride in Sweden

It is the first time in Europe that sex workers have their own float during a Pride event and of course I was there…

Despite the Swedish government saying that prostitution has almost disappeared in Sweden and that all sex workers are miserable victims, some Swedish sex workers organised within Rose Alliance, the Swedish sex workers’ union, have danced, enjoyed themselves and manifested their pride in Stockholm’s streets.
