Behind our Swedish self-image is another reality.

In the spring of 2020, the survey company Insight Distillery conducted a nationwide quantitative survey on behalf of West Pride to map the situation of LGBTQI people in today’s Sweden. In addition, Swedes’ knowledge of LGBTQI has been reviewed.

The survey highlights that Sweden still grapples with problems regarding equality and discrimination.
