Some things are universal—death, taxes, Dykes on Bikes heading up gay pride parades.

The lesbian motorcycle association led Stockholm Pride‘s street parade on Saturday, the largest LGBT gathering in Scandinavia. The march started at the Zinkensdamm sports arena in Södermalm and wrapped up in at Sergels Torg in the city center. And not even some last-minute rain could dampen the high spirits at the event, a culmination of a week of LGBT-related events.  Check out our colorful slideshow above.
