For a number of years, Swedavia has taken part in the Pride Festival. For this year’s Stockholm Pride, we are offering drop-in weddings in Swedavia’s tent in Pride Park.
“We want to be a role model in sustainable development and work actively for equal rights for everyone. So it is natural for us to take an active part in Stockholm Pride. It is possible to hold a same sex wedding at every Swedavia airport, so it is especially fun that we can take part and celebrate love in this way at Pride Park,” says Tove Möller, diversity manager at Swedavia. Officiating the ceremony will be Susanne Norman, whose day job is director of Swedavia’s regional airports.
“It is a wonderful experience to be part of people’s day of love as a marriage officiant. I recently married ten couples during West Pride in Gothenburg, and I am now looking forward to performing weddings as well at Stockholm Pride,” Ms Norman notes.
Since 2011, Swedavia has taken part in Pride Festivals around Sweden in order to support the work for equal rights and the equal value of all people, with support for LGBTs being a crucial part of this. Participation in Stockholm is one way to show that Swedavia is a proud employer that is convinced differences are enriching.
The date for the drop-in weddings is July 30, and they will take place in the evening and at night, between 5.00 p.m. and 12.00 midnight. All couples, both gay and straight, are encouraged to take the opportunity, provided they have applied for a marriage licence with the Swedish Tax Agency.
