We’re still “euphoric” after winning the Eurovision Song Contest in Baku this Saturday!
Loreen received a total of 372 points in the competition, with 18 countries awarding her the maximum allowable 12 points.

Loreen’s victory gives Sweden its fifth Eurovision title, and the win means that Sweden will host the Eurovision Song Contest in 2013.

We love Loreen, hope you do too!
Welcome to Sweden 2013! ♥ ♥ ♥

To and from the airports

For the second consecutive year the British magazine Monocle has chosen to include Arlanda Express in its annual rankings of the world’s best transport companies. And for the second year in a row Arlanda Express has been voted the World’s Best High-Speed Airport Connection.

The global lifestyle magazine Monocle conducts a survey each year of companies whose innovations and creativity transform transportation into something more than merely moving from point A to point B. In the magazine’s list of the World’s Top 20 Transport Companies, Arlanda Express has been voted this year’s best high-speed rail connection to and from an airport anywhere in the world, and ranked number 20 overall.

The 11 to 13 of May, Stockholm finally gets its own queer film festval!

The entire program is released and over a three-day festival 16 norm-breaking, fun, serious, outrages films are presented. Cinema Queer International Film Festival is the largest LGBT film festival in Sweden and here to stay!

Cinema Queer presents a wide range of goodies for everyone. This year we especially focus on the new wave of indie queer film from the U.S. Among these are the festival favorites Joe + Belle by Veronica Kedar and Leave it on the Floor by Sheldon Larry.  We are also proud to present the world premier of Travis Mathews I Want Your Love, which even before its opening has attracted considerable attention. Do not miss this exclusive preview!

The festival also looks beyond the European and the U.S. borders and presents Berlinles Teddy Short Award winner Loxoro from Peru and Thailand’s first open lesbians romantic comedy Yes or No?

Cinema Queer International Film Festival is the norm-breaking film festival that by focusing on the film that questions, discuss and look beyond the prevailing standards highlight stories that might otherwise go unnoticed.

We want to offer the Stockholm audience a wide range of LGBTQ- films from around the world, films that otherwise wouldn´t be seen. The goal is to create a natural platform for LGBTQ film in Sweden, both for international film, but also for Swedish filmmakers. Cinema Queer International Film Festival want to offer the audience an alternative to today’s heteronormative cinema and screen films that reflects a different reality.

Stockholm International Queer Tango Festival 6th ed 13-15 May 2011
7th Stockholm International Queer Tango Festival: workshops, milongas, performances and seminars.
Queer Tango is freedom and dancing pleasure! Queer tango gives you the possibility to play with dance roles without being forced into one role because of your sex. It’s your choice if you want to dance as a leader or follower, both roles or even sliding / open roles. Queer Tango enrich, broaden & deepen interaction and your dancing in a playful dialogue. Queer Tango gives you the freedom of choice and is challenging the heteronormative structures which are preserving traditional thinking and practice about gender and sexuality.

Martin Blix, Stockholm

Our dear friend Martin Blix is featured in OUT right now on MY CITY Our Favorite People, Our Favorite Cities.

“Martin Blix may boast he knows the city better than a cab driver, but the Stockholm-born-and-bred DJ and singer (for house band Domenicer and ’80s Hi-Nrg band ItaLove credits his Parisian boyfriend for keeping his visitor’s perspective forever fresh. (His day job as marketing/PR wiz for the five-star Sheraton Stockholm Hotel can’t hurt either.) From a summer ‘noon on Djurgården to a day poking around the bars, vintage stores, and cafes in SoFo, the trendy queer neighborhood he calls home, here Blix shares his picks.”

Check out Martin’s favorite places in Stockholm!
