The Stockholm Affair from HERCULES UNIVERSAL on Vimeo.

Tomorrow, the women of Olivia (more than 600!) are setting sail for Scandinavia and Russia on an all-lesbian luxury cruise!

The cruise starts and ends in Stockholm, June 20 – June 27. We love that Stockholm is full of lesbians right now and a lot of shops and restaurants has made special deals for the ladies of Olivia to make them feel welcome to our city. Discount at Roxy, Mälarpaviljongen and much more.

We’re so proud of our amazing gay rugby team in Stockholm! Last Sunday Sthlm Berserkers won the Bingham Challenger cup!


The Berserkers is Stockholm’s first gay rugby team consisting of about 50 players. The team offers a positive athletic and social environment for dedicated Ruggers as well as for “Wanna-Be” Ruggers. Everybody’s welcome regardless of prior Rugby experience.

The Berserkers love Rugby! Not only because it is a cool sport that requires endurance, strength and explosivity, but also because on the Rugby Pitch everyone is equally important. It doesn’t matter if you are short or tall; stocky or skinny; quick as a squirrel or massively stable like a wall. Either way, you are needed on the Pitch and your skills will be put into practice when hanging out with the Bersekers.

Daniel in Sthlm Berserkers is one of the profiles to vote for in WIN A DATE WITH STOCKHOLM.
