About Reykjavik Pride

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 2015 we celebrate Reykjavik Pride for the seventeenth time. Our cozy little pride, originally visited by some fifteen hundred onlookers, 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 one of the biggest little Prides in the world.

Happy Reykjavik Pride!
