Stockholm is arguably the gay capital of Scandinavia. Diversity, inclusion, and particularly the LGBTI community has been top of the agenda for the city for a very long time. Next week, Stockholm hosts the opening of Europride 2018 for the third time in three decades.

And just in time for that, the city has produced an open letter inviting lovers, haters and hesitaters to experience the city for themselves and revel in its diversity.

The open letter is the their way of welcoming the global public to a city built on the idea of an inclusive and open society, with democracy at its core.
