Thank you for an amazing Copenhagen Pride Week 2022!
For the first time since 2019, we were able to throw a full scale Copenhagen Pride with no restrictions or looming lockdowns. That does not mean that we have lost sight of taking consideration for those in our community who are unable to join in person, and the last few years of experience with digital delivery enabled us to livestream a large number of events and record shows to be shared on our channels.
With the theme ‘Freedom’, we marched, we listened, we shouted, and we danced. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to everyone who participated. We hope you enjoyed this year’s Copenhagen Pride and all the work that went into creating it.
We are also working towards getting better and we appreciate all the feedback we have gotten, positive as well as constructive. Pride belongs to the LGBTI+ community and we will continue to grow, develop, and improve on that foundation.
