The two men were enjoying a night out in downtown Stockholm and were sitting outside Seven-Eleven on Klarabergsgatan at 4.20am on Wednesday morning when they were attacked.
“Three men approached them saying humiliating things and then started to assault them without provocation. They mentioned the Pride festival and that the men were gay,” said Bo Olsson at Stockholm police to Sveriges Nyheter.
The three suspects were caught and arrested at around 5am. The men are reported to be between 17 and 20-years-old.
Additionally, multiple queer inclusive churches that sponsored EuroPride have also been covered in fliers denouncing the gays.
