Copenhagen has steadily established itself as one of the world’s LGBTQ+ capitals, and it was no surprise when World Pride chose the city to host its 2021 event.
Indeed, Copenhagen and neighboring Malmö won the right to also host the EuroGames at the same time, but the restrictions prevented ‘Copenhagen 2021’ from being one of the biggest events these parts have ever seen.
The LGBTQ+ neighborhood in Scandinavia
“Denmark has impressive credentials all around – it got a 10 on the Gay Index, an 86 on the Equality Index, and it was the first country in the world to recognize same-sex partnerships in 1989. Great Britain LGBT Awards said it best: ‘It’s hard to find a distinct LGBTQ neighborhood in Copenhagen – until you realize that Copenhagen is the LGBTQ neighborhood in Scandinavia,’” applauded Big 7 Travel.
“Known for its lively Pride celebration, it is certainly one of the most LGBTQ+-friendly cities in the world. A mix of political rallies, educational events, films, concerts and parties, Copenhagen Pride is one of the best that exists. Gay parties also continue throughout the year. Find queer events in Bøssehuset, see a show at the Copenhagen Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, or find one of the many gay cafes around the city. The city also hosts Copenhagen Winter Pride Week and Pride Christmas – told you the fun continues all year!
