a long history of LGBT + rights
We are one of the world’s most welcoming countries for LGBT + travelers. Sexual activity between those of the same gender was legalized as long ago as 1944. We are the first country in the world to allow transgender persons to change their legal gender after reassignment surgery.
We will never end the fight for equality and human rights. That’s why we at StandOut Travel want to inspire, share our knowledge, and grow together with our customers. We want you to be true to yourself and discover your ability while in Sweden. Be you. Be proud. Year-round. Dare to StandOut!

Gothenburg Guide Expert
Gothenburg has given me so much over the years so now I want to share the soul, history, and atmosphere of this city. From the beginning the city was multicultural and that was the start of a liberal spirit. An openminded city, liberal values where everyone can feel at home. City walks, bus sightseeings from the inner city til surrounding villages and islands. English and French are my professional languages. My professional motto is ” Without joy my motor stops.

I made a two-day visit to Stockholm last week. When I take such trips, I make it a point to try and identify a local LGBTQ tourism company for walking tours. I found StandOut Travel and reached out for a private tour on a Friday since that’s all my schedule would allow. Erik was a great guide on a fun and informative tour through the streets of the Old Town, into the palace, to the Vasa Museum. We even had lunch at one of the local queer establishments. I recommend StandOut Travel. Excellent resource! Thanks.

I took a private tour with one of the founders, Erik. He was absolutely wonderful! He took such care in planning our day together and then extended some advice for what to do on my own after our day was done. He highlighted local foods and drinks. I felt like I was personally taken care of while I was in Stockholm. I cannot wait to get back and be part of the group travel package during Pride in 2019. I cannot recommend StandOut travel enough!
