    Everybody loves Sweden, it is the reason they managed to win the eurovision song contest. They certainly did not win by singing.

    Yeah we got the HBTQ weeks here currently. Will end before the 15th though.

    As far as places for the gay people, I'm not gay so I'm not an expert by any means but Gretas is a classic gay place, only proper gay place I've been to, played records a few times on their 2nd floor, good fun, gayers can party and have fun.
    http://www.gretas.nu

    You need to be 20 yo to enter. Clubs generally have different kind of age limitations, it's not always strictly 18, some places wants a more mature crowd.

    There are more clubnights etc for gayers that I know my cousin frequent but I've got no more details on that, Park Lane used to have a big gay night on Sundays, thats all I know. There are some 400-bars and clubs in the city center alone though.

    Sweden is quite a friendly country for HBT-people in general.
    The nerve is called the "nerve of awareness". You cant dissect it. Its a current that runs up the center of your spine. I dont know if any of you have sat down, crossed your legs, smoked DMT, and watch what happens... but what happens to me is this big thing goes RRRRRRRRRAAAAAWWW! up my spine and flashes in my brain... well apparently thats whats going to happen if I do this stuff...

    Gretas rocked. I worked out at schools informing youngsters about everything that has to do with sex, alot of the work also included HBTQ related issues.
    Some weekends we worked some extra and went out to nightclubs handing out condoms and informing and I remember Gretas and Park Lane were always kickass

    Sweden is a beacon of hope to the rest of the world. :P

    It's amazing

    tyvm xoxo

    I've always called myself a queer in public, it's funny to watch people squirm when they hear words they aren't use to, or are considered taboo.

    HBQT sounds better than LGBT imo :P

    The Scandinavian countries are a really good place for people who define themselves other than hetero.
    Very few religious people here which (sad that it is true) help out with liberal views and equal value of all people.

    Never heard that term before, we tend to use LGBT (Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender).

    What do you define as queer? We use queer to mean gay, but you already have that covered in the HB part.

    My grandma can't be thrown anywhere she just grabs you by the ear and make you do the dishes!

    Gretas is brilliant though, deffo a place I would go to if I came into town and was a gayer.

    I got no clue what a Queer is, how do you define queer Cranberries?

    Bakis we call it HBTQ, I'm pretty sure of it, not only HBT.

    - Denmark 30 June -8 July
    - Germany 8 - 15 July
    - France 15 - 23 July

    I live in the UK however and in the UK we have a) our own currency and b) very, very cheap prices on alcohol and such. Mostly I'm going to visit friends and we'll be out a lot of the time, or eating takeaway food. So I'd like to know the general prices of alcohol so that I can compare. Mostly it's the price of alcohol because I know the UK is relatively cheap compared to - well - the rest of the world when it comes to alcohol pricing in superstores (and as such we're one of the worst countries for drinking in the world x_x).

    To take an example:
    http://www.tesco.com/groceries/Produ.../?id=255248875 - although it doesn't state it, it's 17.5%
    http://www.tesco.com/groceries/Produ.../?id=270978627 - again, it's 4.6%

    Also I plan to visit the following places: Gothenburg, Helsinki, Rodovre, Berlin and Paris so if anyone knows of any good places to experience the night life please let me know: preferably cheap and ... *cough* gay friendly

    Any help is appreciated, thanks!

    xoxo
    Prices for alcohol in the UK are -very- -very- high. And I mean, -very- high.
    Then again, Sweden, Finland and Denmark are worse, France and Germany cheaper, by miles...

    In sweden we dont have euro and im not sure if its possible to pay with euro on resturant(Have never thought about it). 1 euro is about 10 SEK. Eating out is pretty expensive but take away food is getting more popular at the moment, Sushi for example. Another suggestion is, if u want to eat "swedish" food u should acctualy eat at an Ikea store, its pretty cheap as well.

    Alochol prices are pretty high, acctualy I havent been drinking in any other country so I cant really compare. But buying drinks at clubs is very expensive. We got a monopoly system in sweden, so if u want stronger alcohol(think its over 4%) u will need to visit a store called Systembolaget, or buy at a club.
