The parade during WorldPride in Copenhagen was held as six different pride parades. The routes started from different places in Copenhagen to avoid many needs and at slightly different times.
The participants in the parade that went from Rådhuspladsen represented organizational life, sports, politics and various associations. The route went towards Fælledparken, a little northwest of the city where all the rows of priests gathered in cohorts for the big closing ceremony.
Except for a guide car in front and police cards, all participants walked. It gave a little less “eye-snap” to look at, but in return people went and sang and talked together.
Not least, cheers, shouts and applause from the spectators, who had also dressed up, contributed to the mood being sky-high.
After the closing ceremony, the celebration continued, first and foremost at a packed WorldPride Park outside Copenhagen City Hall, but also in all the central side streets’ cafes and pubs.
Among the most iconic of these, ordinary Copenhagen Cafe in the Sauna, is known and loved by many Norwegians who applied, as it was not a matter of course to have the right to love you want.
Free happy people in Copenhagen
If you were to report in detail from the World Pride events, which this year have been shared between Malmö and Copenhagen, you would have to have worked 24 hours a day, so that ambition is just to go away.
From its opening day on August 12, World Pride has offered countless artistic, political and cultural activities.
But since access to the various events has been limited due to the corona situation, where the square in front of Copenhagen City Hall has been important as a place to gather.
From there, it has been possible to follow the ongoing concerts and happenings on the big screen. That people have been looking forward to meeting for a long time is clearly shown in the open, almost ecstatic atmosphere of the place.
