The head of Sweden’s Armed Forces took part in Pride Parade


The Supreme Commander of the Swedish Armed Forces marched at the Stockholm Pride parade singing Elvis Presley’s song. Sweden is the host of this year’s EuroPride festivities, split between the cities of Stockholm and Gothenburg – and many of the country’s institutions joined the celebrations to show how proud they are to support the rainbow community of Sweden. The Swedish Armed Forces have been prominent in their celebrations of diversity across the festivities, with a campaign telling people that the Swedish army is not always marching straight. The head of the Armed Forces, General Micael Bydén, took part in the Pride parade in Stockholm on August 4, with a clip on social media showing that he has a hidden talent of singing. Well, not hidden anymore, because the whole country praised the way he sang ‘Suspicious minds’ by Elvis. The crowd appeared to be thrilled with the moment, though Russian state propaganda outlet Sputnik claims it has “divided the Swedish public.” Only hate can divide, love unites.
