Today was our first day in Copenhagen, and we set out this morning with no idea what the day would bring. Should we rent a bike? Maybe we should get familiar with the currency? Is anything going on downtown? Oh wow it looks like something is going on today… Copenhagen Pride! A free festival dedicated to the LGBTQ community, Pride is a massive parade that promotes and makes visible the Danish LGBTQ members. The quaint downtown area was swarmed with loving and supportive crowds drinking beer and champagne and dancing in the streets. It looks like we arrived on a good day!
^^^So many beautiful people strutting their stuff… get it girl!
^^^Do I recognize her from Downton Abbey?
^^^The crowd had so much positive energy… which of course immediately translated into even more sassiness from the proud LGBTQ community members.
^^^Who’s got two thumbs and is a Grade-A badass? This dude.
^^^Everybody was included in the crowd participation and interaction.
We also met an American/Swedish couple that insisted on buying us drinks as we stood together in the crowd and cheered. So many beautiful and positive people everywhere sharing an energy of communal acceptance… what a wonderful first day in Denmark! I wonder what will happen tomorrow…
