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 2017 we celebrate Reykjavik Pride for the nineteenth time. Our cozy little pride, originally visited by some fifteen hundred onlookers, has blossomed and evolved into a colorful 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.

Happy Reykjavik Pride!
