For over 23 years, Alf has documented the festival in his various roles such as festival manager, operations manager Pride Park, project manager EuroPride 2018 and communications manager within Stockholm Pride. Without it being intended that way from the beginning, it also became a documentation of parts of the drag show group WAD Girls. An all-volunteer group since 2003 operating within the community to mark World Aids Day and to raise money for a support fund for HIV positive men who have had their finances impaired by the infection.
The group has been nominated twice as drag show group of the year in Sweden by the magazine QX. In 2005 and 2009, WAD Girls won the prize as best crew in Stockholm's Pride Parade. In 2018, the WAD Girls were awarded the paradutroparna's honorary prize and in the same year the group was also awarded HIV Sweden's Red Ribbon of Honor for their work. Through their work, they have so far collected over SEK 800,000.
The pictures are not from shows but rather straight and honest of members of the group when they are not in the audience's focus. Previously, parts of these images have been exhibited at WestPride 2023 and then at the City Library in Gothenburg.
Alf is a photographer who mostly photographs street photos and city life in black and white. His photos can be found on Instagram: @fotoalfen or on the website: fotoalfen.se. This year, Alf is a volunteer photographer at Stockholm Pride.
