About half of the participants of the European Pride parades call themselves heterosexual. Many of them joined the march spontaneously, according to the new study.
The study was conducted by researchers at the University of Gothenburg during last year’s Pride Festival in Stockholm. Scientists have found that about 60% of the gay parade are women, more than 40% are heterosexual.
Also, it turned out that every third member of Pride came to him spontaneously. 42% of respondents during last year’s Gay Pride in Stockholm were aged from 30 to 49 years, only 35% were less than 29 years.
Some respondents admitted that they joined the procession, simply because it’s fun.
