Reykjavik Pride has been an annual event in Reykjavik since 1999, but the history goes back to 1993 when Icelandic gays and lesbians first gathered in the city center demanding freedom and human rights.
In 2017, Reykjavik Pride is celebrated for the nineteenth time. Originally visited by some fifteen hundred onlookers, Reykjavik Pride has blossomed and evolved into a colourful six-day celebration that attracts up to 100 thousand guests from all over the world. Reykjavík Pride is, in fact, one of the biggest events in Iceland and probably “the biggest small Pride” in the world.
The festival is held 8 – 13 August and you can access all the information you need at www.hinsegindagar.is.
