Stockholm is one of the world’s best cities for gay people. GayCities collected more than 23,000 votes from its members and named Stockholm as the winner in the Up-And-Coming category.

“Sweden has always been a the forefront of the LGBTQ rights movement, so we are proud to provide Stockholm with the Up-And-Coming award in the Best of GayCities2016,” said Tim Winfred of GayCities.

The Swedish city was picked ahead of US hubs Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Richmond and Buffalo. The only non-American location in the category, Stockholm received one-third of all fan votes and beat several other great cities.

San Francisco was Best City of 2016, with Orlando City of the Year. The only other European cities featured were London, Berlin and Madrid.
