Det lukter brass! / The coppers are coming!

Pride City, Wed 3 Aug 2:00 PM–3:00 PM

"Det luktar brass," literally "it smells like brass" was the warning gay men shouted when the cops are raiding cruising areas.

Between December 1883 and March 1884, constables Rosenberg & Sefverblad carried out Sweden's largest raid on cruising in Berzelii park and the surrounding area. We go throught the picant and fascinating details in their police report and meet the most interesting characters.
This event marks the turning point in Stockholm history when the police began arresting and persecuting homosexuals who were only trying to live out their sexual orientation.
