About Reykjavik Pride

Reykjavik Pride has been an annual event in Reykjavik since 1999 but the first Reykjavik Pride Parade took place in August 2000. However, its history goes back to 1993 when Icelandic gays and lesbians first gathered in the city center of Reykjavik, demanding freedom and human rights. The protest was repeated in 1994.

Our cozy little pride, originally visited by some fifteen hundred onlookers, has blossomed and evolved into almost a week-long, colorful celebration that attracts over 100 thousand guests from all over the world. Reykjavik Pride is, in fact, the biggest annual event in Iceland and has sometimes been called “the world’s biggest small Pride!”

Reykjavik Pride is organized and held by the not-for-profit organization Hinsegin dagar í Reykjavik – Reykjavík Pride. Any profit or surplus funds the organization raises are used to improve the events and support the LGBT+ communities.
