0900-1800: Queer History of Copenhagen, Location: Copenhagen Museum, Copenhagen (12-22 Aug). Throughout August you can listen to 1000 years of Copenhagen queer history at the Museum of Copenhagen. At 10 locations in the permanent exhibition about Copenhagen, you can, by using your mobile phone, listen to stories about people who one way or another deviated from the current norms, all the way back from the age of the Vikings and up until today. Stories about difference, about the right to love and about the various circumstances that influenced the expression of love through the ages. Just bring your mobile phone and have your QR code reader ready to scan the QR codes in the exhibitions then you will get access to these small glimpses of queer history.

1400-1830: Leif Holmstrand ‘Perilous Party’, Location: Inkonst, Malmö (13-21 Aug). Malmö’s best artist fills our spaces with crochet, trash, sad flags and peculiar objects. It’s art that makes you laugh with tears in your throat, that makes you think about bodies and dreams, art that is never predictable. Perilous Party moves in a disintegrating and unsecured queer space.

1600-1730: Pride in the North Atlantic, Location: Nordatlantens Brygge, Copenhagen. Since 1999, Reykjavik Pride has filled the city’s streets with people and celebrated diversity. Nuuk Pride has also been doing this since 2010, as has Tórshavn Pride, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. And both Iceland, the Faroe Islands and Greenland have strong LGBTI+ movements that have left clear traces on the development of society and the debate in the three countries. Hear short presentations and get answers to your questions when we open the doors for an afternoon about LGBTI+ and Prides in the North Atlantic. Danish language.

1700-2000: Bubbly on the Quay, Location: Nordatlantens Brygge, Copenhagen. Enjoy a glass of bubbly in our Rainbow Bar, on the quay by North Atlantic House, where DJ Gisli Galdur conjures up a lounge atmosphere under the gentle summer sky.

1930-2230: Lotic, Location: Inkonst, Malmö. Lotic is bending the very boundaries of dance music, all whilst reflecting on subjects such as race, sexuality and gender. She was born and raised in Houston but has been a pivotal person in the adventurous club scene of Berlin for almost a decade.

Exhibition José Leonilson – Drawn 1975-1993, Location: Malmö konsthall (12-22 Aug). This exhibition is the first major retrospective of Leonilson’s work in Europe and presents a selection of 250 works, from his early paintings to the late introspective embroidery, created after he was diagnosed with AIDS, a disease untreatable at the time.
