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


At WorldPride 2021, there will be plenty of opportunities to show your pride! Thousands of people from near and far will join us in Copenhagen and Malmö to celebrate our community and pave the way to a more equal and inclusive world.

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

Concerts and Ceremonies

On Friday 13 August the Opening Ceremony will begin in the late afternoon to manifest the beginning of Copenhagen 2021. COVID19 restrictions mean we can’t hold the Opening Ceremony in WorldPride Square, but our alternative plans will be published soon.

At Fælledparken, a beautiful park just north of Copenhagen centre, we’ll have three nights of concerts which will be live-streamed around the world. Under the Rainbow on Thursday 18 August will showcase LGBTI+ talent from Denmark, Sweden, and the rest of the world. Copenhagen’s iconic Drag Night takes place on Friday 19 August.

On Saturday 21 August, the official Closing Ceremony will be an incredible end to our event with performances, speeches and handovers of WorldPride, EuroGames and EuroPride to the next hosts.
