    Somehow when I saw the term “Gay of the Year” the name Tom Daley came t mind.

    “Gay of the Year” seems rather an odd thing to name an award to me for some reason haha.

    But I’d love to see a video of this.

    1. Images and Video from the QX GayGala award ceremony/party can be seen here.

  3. Here you can find images and two videos from the QX GayGala Award 2013.

    Cool lady, and I LOVE the tiara!

  5. She has a sweet face :-)

  6. Guys the title is probably lost in translations..

    anyway i thought that Queen Christina was the Gay Queen but its all good !

    Incidently here is a great swedish english short film http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9h3oBiWEn8

  7. Well that’s certainly an example of reaching out to all types of people that other royal families might do well to emulate!

    REHAN-you hit the mark ! I have had the pleasure to talk with ! The Norwegian Queen, Sonja.( A meeting in a church in Oslo- a few years ago ) And I did mention that I was gay. The Queen showed an interesting and positive attitude, with no signs at all of being “anti-gay” or meaning we are unwanted in any connection in society. Of course she retained a neutral and formal “behaviour” (including verbal answers and comments –) But – IMPORTANT : The Royal Families in Scandinavia appear to be VERY DIFFERENT from The British Royal Family when it comes to matters related to gay rights.
