Copenhagen Pride is the ultimate celebration of love, diversity, and acceptance that takes place in the heart of Denmark's capital city every year, drawing tens of thousands of people from around the world.
The history of Copenhagen Pride dates back to 1996 when a group of LGBTQ+ activists organized a small demonstration in the city center to raise awareness about the challenges faced by the community. Over the years, the event has grown into one of the most vibrant and inclusive pride celebrations in Europe, featuring a packed schedule of events that cater to all ages and interests.
The festivities are held over a week in August, featuring a colorful political festival with awards, parties, concerts, film screenings, street parties. Then the high point is the pride parade, which winds its way through the downtown streets of Copenhagen, showcasing a dazzling display of rainbow flags, costumes, and floats. The parade is a celebration of love, diversity, and equality, and is a chance for LGBTQ+ individuals and allies to come together and show their support for our community.
The rest of the week is filled with a range of events, including concerts, parties, talks, workshops, and more. Whether you're looking to dance the night away at one of the many pride parties or learn something new at a workshop or talk, there's something for everyone at Copenhagen Pride.
