Helsinki Pride 2016

So, I traveled to Finland for summer, as there are not too many things to do in Umeå now when school’s out. I’ve been pole dancing now six days a week and just finished my second Swedish course, other than that I’m taking it chill until I have to go back to school. Last Saturday one of the best events Finland has to offer took place in Helsinki: Pride festival!

I have been to the event the past couple of years and it’s just getting bigger and bigger every year, I read somewhere that about 30 000 people participated. The weather was perfect, sunny and warm, me and my friends walked from Senate Square to Kansalaispuisto with the parade, it was so pretty with the balloons and everything. 💜🌈

The events I’m still looking forward to: Kaljakellunta and Flow Festival! Umeå Pride will be held in September… It wasn’t anything special last year but I’ll check it out this year again.
