July in Finland has been the crappiest ever with temperatures like 12 C, constant rain and gray skies 😭😭😭. Here’s a throwback to Midsummer and a lovely ice cream moment at @aulangontornikahvila 💕. It did rain before this picture was taken, too, though...

My annual picture from Aulanko in Hämeenlinna 🌲🌿. @peajaypea and I just bought a house yesterday and we’ll be living close to this area 😊💚.

Had a lovely birthday lunch at @ravintola_viikinsaari a few weeks back 🌿💕. Doesn’t my salmon soup look delish? Finnish summer food at its best!

En route to Viikinsaari, you can see Pyynikki from another angle 💚🌿. Can you spot the Pyynikki Observation Tower and the beach?

For my birthday two weeks ago, we went to Viikinsaari in my hometown Tampere ❤️. The boat trip with @hopealinjat takes only around 20 minutes and upon leaving, you get this legendary view of the Laukontori marketplace as well as @kehrasaari and the Tako factory buildings.

Some more Pride vibes from Helsinki last Saturday 💕🏳️‍🌈!

It’s July, which means that Pride Month is officially over. However, there are still plenty more Pride events coming up around the world, and it’s also important to remember that LGBTQ+ rights need to be talked about all year round, not just for one day, week or month in the summer.
.
I think this was quite possibly the coolest place where I saw the rainbow flag this year - in front of the medieval @hamecastle here in Hämeenlinna 🏳️‍🌈🏰! I think there’s something extremely cool about seeing the flag in a place like this as it makes me think about how far we’ve come from the medieval times in terms of gay rights!

Happy Helsinki Pride 2019 🏳️‍🌈💕! What a fun yet absolutely exhausting day we had 😃! More than 110 000 people came together to march for love and human rights in Helsinki today, which is a lot more than in 2011 when I was previously in Finland for Pride 💪. We bumped into some old friends as well as new online ones and it felt super nice 💕! Love wins 🏳️‍🌈!

Today is the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in New York City 🏳️‍🌈. The police raided the Stonewall Inn, which ended up leading to serious resistance from the LGBTQ+ community, and we can say that it is because of this that we can now celebrate Pride all over the world.
🌈
My current hometown Hämeenlinna is flying rainbow flags in front of the town hall for the first time EVER this year, and it feels goooooood ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜! Let’s all remember that Pride is not only a fun parade once a year but a battle for equal rights for all, and let’s remember its origins as well.
🌈
I’m really proud to say that my biggest role model in life, @madonna, is a Stonewall Ambassador this year - those of you in New York, make sure to enjoy her appearances this weekend to the fullest 💕!
🌈
To the people who resisted and persisted in 1969 - thank you! You’ve paved the way for so many generations after yours and really made an impact on how visible and accepted we can be in many places these days.
🌈
To the city of Hämeenlinna - I hope you understand just how much the gesture of flying the rainbow flags like this means in a town of practically zero visibility on a daily basis! Keep up the good work and keep spreading respect for and awareness of the LGBTQ+ community!
🌈
As for me, I’ll continue to do my thing and make sure LGBTQ+ students and teachers feel safe and respected at schools and that our voices and feelings are heard just as loud and clear as anyone else’s.
