“What an honor it is to be asked to perform at this incredible event! I am so excited. Since 1996 I’ve never stopped releasing singles & performing live, and I have the most wonderful memories of the many Pride Festivals I’ve performed at in the past. Unfortunately, I’ve not been able to be a part of Pride for years and it’s my most favorite charity event. So all you lovely Swedish party people, save you’re vocal chords for your loudest screams, because I’m on my way to rock the house!!

 

” I look forward to meeting you all,  admirers of good music at Stockholm Pride! I will sing my song “Gravity” for you, which took 3rd place at Eurovision Song Contest 2013. See you in Stockholm on August 1! Wish you all the best.”

 

“I’ve never made a distinction between gay or straight. As human beings, an LGBT person has the same rights as everyone else to me. I’m in total favour of marriage between people of the same sex. Love is a universal feeling and has no gender. I’ve always been supportive of the LGBT community and will support it forever. I wish that we will soon be rid of stereotypes created by too many years of racism and religious culture. To love and to be loved is a right, no matter if it’s straight or gay love. The important thing is to be coherent and honest with our own feelings with no fear”

 

“I am very glad to participate in this huge event! It is amazing for me to come back to Sweden after the Eurovision Song Contest. Thank you so much for inviting me to sing Love Kills once again for you!”

 

“I can’t wait to perform at the Stockholm Pride in August! What better place to perform my Eurovision song “Only Love Survives” than at Stockholm Pride – filled with love and as I understand one of the best pride crowds in the world! I look forward to meeting loads of new people at Pride Park on the 1st of August. I hope to see you all there!”

 

“The last time I performed at Stockholm Pride in 2007 was fantastic! I’m really looking forward to returning and seeing all the wonderful people”.
