The week was a beehive of activities. Such as display of pride flags, lectures on the theme of LGBTQ in Linköping, film shows, circus performances and poetry exhibitions to name a few.
One of the highlights was the parade on the 25th with a gathering at Trädgårdsföreningen. It was an opportunity to explain the importance of equal rights and an open-minded society.  RFSL’s goal is that LGBTQ people should have the same rights and obligations as everybody else in society. It was also an opportunity to increase knowledge about LGBTQ people’s living conditions in the society.
