No city in the north European hemisphere throws a more potent Gay Pride celebration than Copenhagen! With its nice, laid-back and tolerant character, it is no wonder that the Old Danish capital is being referred to as one of the most liberal and gay-friendly cities in Europe. This small scale gay metropolis boasts about being the first city ever to allow same sex partner registration and its oldest gay bar, which still works as a draw on both young as well as older people, is more than 80 years old.
With the mission to create equal rights along with visibility for the LGBT community and the vision to obtain this, Wonderful Copenhagen will once again showcase its potential as a gay capital with the celebration of a weekend long, glitz-covered festivity filled with celebratory and cultural elements. With this year’s theme being “Celebrating the Right to Love”, this jolly spectacle, taking place August 18-22, will be welcoming everyone regardless of sexuality, gender, age, ethnicity and region. Packed and stacked with culturally stimulating events and party options, there will be an adequate amount to attend for everyone despite whatever need and interest. The peak of this astounding extravaganza will be reached, as trucks and floats - crammed with all sorts of colourful individuals - once again will roll though the city, spreading love and bliss.
Additional stardust will be sprinkled over Copenhagen, as the capital once more transforms the giant City Hall Square into Pride Square. Here, a composition of multiple artists, programs and activities will take place, sending off the Copenhagen Pride with a boom.
