Volunteer

Be part of Scandinavia’s largest Pride-festival

At Stockholm Pride, everyone from the board to festival management and staff works on a volunteer basis. Working as a volunteer is an incredibly fun, intense, developing and including experience, which many come back to year after year. Together we create a safe space for LGBTQ people, put LGBTQ questions on the political agenda and build the largest Pride-festival in the Nordic region!

Do note that you have to be 18 years old before your first work shift to be a volunteer at Stockholm Pride. You also need to get behind our values (Swedish only). We expect that you as a volunteer work (at least) five shifts, and in return you get a ticket valid throughout the entire festival. Every shift is 6-7 hours. If you cannot work five shifts you can still be a Parade volunteer, for which you will only work during the parade, Saturday August 6, and you get a ticket for the Saturday night parade-gala.
