New Stockholm Online Marketing Campaign Targets Gay and Lesbian Travel

Discover the world's 'Favourite LGBT-Friendly City', fly with award-winning SAS Scandinavian Airlines with a local Stockholm resident guide – to highlight some of the best of their own favourite things which the city has to offer.?

Entrants choose between six guys or girls, depending on what most interests them, each being a Stockholm ambassador for a specific theme, such as Arts & Culture, Sports, Outdoor, Fashion & Design, Food & Flavours or Music & Nightlife.

The new social media campaign, Win A Date With Stockholm, is live online until June 30, 2012 at and is organized by Stockholm Visitors Board, VisitSweden, SAS Scandinavian Airlines and the Stockholm Gay & Lesbian Network.?

Six men and six women represent their various favourite leisure themes in the city, and people can choose the person they want to meet based on the program they have tailored to their specific theme.

The ambassadors hoping to show their very own ideal time with Stockholm include the rugby player Daniel, the flight attendant Malin, the stylist Magnus and gold-medal awarded sportswoman Linda.

'The ambassador who receives the most votes becomes the winning guide for the campaign, and four lucky winners – and a travelling companion – win a 'date' with Stockholm based on their choice," says Christina Guggenberger, head of the Stockholm Gay & Lesbian Network within Stockholm Visitors Board. "As Stockholm has just been awarded the title 'Favourite LGBT-Friendly City', we are really looking forward to giving our gay and lesbian guests this unique opportunity to experience our city with a local who can help them discover hidden gems that make Stockholm so wonderful – which you won't find in your average guidebook.'?

Win A Date With Stockholm runs until the end of June and can be found at the Stockholm Gay & Lesbian Network's Facebook page and blog, which can be located via
