Icelandic gays flirted with the soldiers at Hotel Borg back in the days. Later on the lesbians hid at Stúdentakjallarinn (the Student Cellar) but eventually the drag scene started to bloom at Rauða Myllan (our very own Moulin Rouge) – and so on! Sometimes the queer nightlife has been hidden, and sometimes it has been out and loud.
Reykjavik Pride offers a fun and educational nightlife history walk around the Reykjavik city centre. We’ll visit some historical places to hear the nightlife stories first hand while enjoying cold refreshments that are included in the ticket price.. but speaking from experience we don’t recommend showing up on an empty stomach 😉
The walk leaves from Hlemmur bus terminal at 18 and ends at Hotel Borg where those who are interested can have dinner together.
