Copenhagen Pride is Denmarks largest annual Human Rights festival, focused on LGBT issues, but involving the entire capital of Denmark, held every August in Copenhagen, Denmark. A colourful and festive occasion, it combines political issues with concerts, films and a parade. The focal point is the City Hall Square in the city centre. The festival usually opens on the Wednesday of Pride Week, culminating on the Saturday with a parade. In 2014, some 21,000 people took part in the parade with floats and flags, and up to 120.000 people were out in the streets to experience it.[1]

History[edit]

Copenhagen Pride began in 1996 when Copenhagen was the European Capital of Culture and hosted the Europride event. From 1998 onwards the festival was called Mermaid Pride and from 2004 onwards Copenhagen Pride. During the first years the festival was held in June, but in 1999 it was moved to August. The city's pride festival has been held every year since 1996, one of the outstanding events being held in connection with the World Outgames in 2009.[2] In addition to the summer festival, the first Copenhagen Winter Pride was held in February 2015.
