Copenhagen Pride

Every year in August, Copenhagen Pride offers activities where LGBT issues are at the centre of attention. It is both festive, colourful and political with awards, parties, concerts, films and other kinds of entertainment.

During Pride Week there are plenty of activities around Copenhagen, with City Hall Square - renamed Pride Square - as the focal point of action.

Access to the square and all events there are of course free to attend. However you can show your support for the Pride by buying the official Pride bracelet - on sale at the square.

Pride Square usually opens Wednesday during Pride Week, and for the following days and nights you can experience drag shows, concerts, dancing and not least the grand finale of Denmark's Mr Gay contest.

Copenhagen Pride Parade Saturday

Copenhagen Pride always ends with a large, festive and colourful parade. In 2013, 20,000 gays, lesbians, transsexuals and bisexuals strutted their stuff through the city, jamming the traffic with floats and rainbow flags.

When the weather is good, the parade usually gathers thousands of spectators lining the parade route, which usually begins at Frederiksberg Town Hall at 13:00 and ends at City Hall Square in the heart of Copenhagen around 16:00.

Afterwards the music programme gets the party started with Danish and international artists and DJ's. The party continues way into the night across Copenhagen, in the LGBT bars and clubs as well as in Studiestræde and Knabrostræde in inner city.
