Helsinki Pride 2021

Traditionally here in Finland the week after Midsummer is booked for Helsinki Pride. During the last weeks many people in different countries have celebrated Pride.

Keeping up the motivation to work all day, while also being surrounded by home’s comforts and family members seemed nearly impossible. Adjusting to all of this, […]
