Stockholm has given the world gay icons for hundreds of years, from ”Queer” Queen Kristina in the 17th century to modern day icons like Abba, Greta Garbo, Lisbeth Salander, Robyn and TV’s True Blood’s vampire Viking, actor Alexander Skarsgård - we're pretty much a gay icon too. It's time to for the UK to upgrade its city break to a stylish, cultural and cosmopolitan destination just a mere 2.5 hours flight away.
