Karolinska Institutet supports Stockholm Pride that will take place on the first week of August 2022. The rainbow flag will fly at KI Campus throughout Pride week and we will take part in the Pride Parade Saturday 6 August. The Pride Parade starts at Norr Mälarstrand at 13:00 and you can also join the Academic Pride pre-party at 11.00.

Karolinska Institutet's participation in the Pride Parade is in collaboration with Medicinska Föreningen (MF) and Odontologiska Föreningen (OF). Together we welcome all students and staff to come and take part in the Pride Parade. The higher education institutions: Karolinska Institutet, KTH, Stockholm University and Stockholm School of Economics are joining the parade together as the Academic Pride.

Before the parade you can join the pre-party together with the other universities. We gather in Rotundan at Stockholm University, Frescativägen 9, for a pre-party at 11:00. Light food and alcohol free drinks will be served to pre-registered participants. T-shirts will be handed out first come first served.

Academic Pride’s start number is 109. If you want a place on the truck, make sure to be there on time. First come, first served! At 12.30, all people have to be on the truck bed.
