A celebration of equality and diversity in Copenhagen and Malmö took place from August 12-22, 2021.


Thousands of people from near and far joined us in Copenhagen and Malmö to celebrate our community and pave the way to a more equal and inclusive world.

WorldPride in Copenhagen 2021 was a celebration of equality, arts and human rights proudly hosted by Copenhagen Pride in collaboration with Malmö Pride.

Concerts and Ceremonies

COVID19 restrictions meant we couldn’t hold the Opening Ceremony in WorldPride Square. However, from KB Hallen we had three nights of concerts which were be live-streamed to Fælledparken and WorldPride Square and around the world. Under the Rainbow on Thursday 19 August showcased LGBTI+ talent from Denmark, Sweden, and the rest of the world. Copenhagen’s iconic Drag Night took place on Friday 20 August and was live streamed globally in partnership with Time Out.

On Saturday 21 August, the official Closing Ceremony brought an end to our event with spectacular performances, speeches including from Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen and HRH The Crown Princess of Denmark and handovers of WorldPride, EuroGames and EuroPride to the next hosts.

WorldPride Square

WorldPride Square at Rådhuspladsen right in the middle of Copenhagen was an impressive village for all Copenhagen 2021 participants to gather throughout the day and in the evening.

We’ll hosted selected high quality food outlets, Copenhagen 2021 bars, booths from some of our partners, and a photography exhibition. WorldPride Square was a focal point and a place to meet your friends, relax, and take in the vibe.
