Copenhagen Will Host WorldPride 2021

Get your passport ready! The Danish capital will host WorldPride in 2021…
 
It’s official! Copenhagen will host WorldPride 2021!
 
The biennial event is the world’s largest LGBT festival and is expected to attract hundreds of thousands of visitors. New York is set to host WorldPride in 2019, and previous hosting cities include Madrid (2017), Toronto (2014), London (2012), Jerusalem (2006), and Rome (2000).
 
“We’re ecstatic at the prospect of hosting WorldPride,” said Lars Christian Østergreen, the managing director at Happy Copenhagen, according to the bid’s official website. “WorldPride 2021 will put human rights, diversity and inclusivity front and centre to promote equality around the world.”
 
2021 will also mark the 25th anniversary of Copenhagen Pride.
 
The Scandinavian country is also bidding to host the EuroGames in 2021, with plans to combine it with WorldPride into one mega-event, ‘Copenhagen 2021’, which will include a human rights conference.
“Uniting WorldPride and EuroGames in the same city will be historic,” enthused Østergreen.
 
“By combing the playfulness of Pride, the competitiveness of sports and the seriousness of human rights, we want Copenhagen 2021 to be a transformative journey for all participants.”
 
Copenhagen won two-thirds of the vote for WorldPride 2021, seeing off the challenge of US city Fort Lauderdale.
