What is the Pride Parade?
The Pride Parade is a demonstration for acceptance and rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex, asexual and queer (also referred to as LGBTI+) people. Individuals and small groups of friends do not need to register to participate in the Parade, but groups and companies do.
As a participant in the Parade during Copenhagen Pride, you join this demonstration for fundamental principles of freedom and human rights, as well as a celebration of diversity.
By diversity we mean that participation in the Parade reflects the general diversity of our society, including variations in age, ethnicity, gender identity, gender expression, religion, physical ability and educational background of the participants. It is a goal in itself that the space we create is not just aimed at individual population groups. If you stand with us, you stand for everyone in our community, without exception.
The Parade is about freedom, rights and acceptance; about understanding that we are not all the same or think alike, and about respect for the individual’s right to their own body, identity, expression and sexuality. It is a goal to create an inclusive space.
By inclusion we mean an active and ongoing effort to achieve a space that invites diversity by working to ensure that our events, language and expressed values are representative of a broad spectrum of the community. At the same time, inclusion involves countering abusive behavior in order to create an environment where participants can feel safe.
