Sweden's Crown Princess Victoria made a surprise show-stealing appearance at Monday's Gay Gala in Stockholm to hand out the prize for Gay of the Year.

The Gay Gala at the Cirkus concert venue in Stockholm is an annual event sponsored by QX magazine, which is published for the LGBT community in Sweden and Scandinavia.

At the gala, Crown Princess Victoria was given a minute-long standing ovation when she caught the audience by surprise and appeared on stage just before midnight. She was there to award the prize for Gay of the Year (Årets homo) to comedian and author Jonas Gardell.

Imagine the outcry if you had the same 'straight' awards.

@ skogsbo. The reason to have such an award is to help promote equality for the LGBT community... ergo there would no such need for a straight award.

@ stupr
Having an event exclusively for LGBT people in order to promote equality seems self-defeating. Surely if we're all equal and all the same, etc. then there is no need to have a special event for a 'special' type of people. Ergo - they're not actually special because we're all the same. The whole thing is oxymoronic.

Respect is like love; if you want it for yourself, you have to give it away.
Bigotry is self-defining; if someone else's race, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, or any other immutable characteristic is important to you, then you are the bigot.
If the LGBT community wants to give themselves awards, that is their business, and of no interest to me.
If the Princess wants to give her respects to the LGBT community, she will get respect back from them.

Seems like she is trying to please the one reamining group who still is fascinated with crinolines and crowns.
What about her biblical values?
