    As far as I'm aware, Sweden as a county is very liberal and accepting to homosexuality

    Gay marriage is legal there too, legalized last year, so it looks to be a very accepting country

    As for Uppsala itself, I can't comment sorry

    Almost anywhere in sweden is gay friendly, and I don't think Uppsala is an exception. In general no one will care or be bothered by it.

    as long as you dont behave "conspicuous" and get on other peoples nerves with your gayness, any place is gay-friendly I'd say... .

    Yes. I imagine it would be.
    Most of Sweden is very liberal, and Uppsala is a place with a lots of young and open people, so I don't think that you should be that worried. I'm quite sure they also have a GHBT community at the university and something along the likes.

    Don't worry. Uppsala is gay-friendly. No one really cares. I'm not sure how much of a scene there is though. There's a gay society in the university called SFQ (I think) and a club that's a gay club one day a week or something like that.
