WorldPride 2021 Copenhagen
Updated: Oct 17, 2019
August 12-22, 2021 will mark the 7th WorldPride celebration and 19th EuroGames in the host cities of Copenhagen, Denmark and Malmö, Sweden.
#YouAreIncluded is one of the themes we will see encouraging the athletic community to be more inclusive. The EuroGames are an LGBTQ sporting event in Europe, hosted by license of the European Gay and Lesbian Sport Federation and organized by one or more of the federation's member clubs. Similar to the Gay Games, EuroGames are a sports-for-all-event, open to everyone, irrespective of sex, age, sexual identity or physical ability. The 2021 games will feature 25+ disciplines in world-class facilities welcoming an anticipated 6,000+ participants.
Traditional sports such as aquatics (diving, synchronized swimming, swimming, and waterpolo), ball sports (volleyball, basketball, soccer, etc.), dance, athletics (cycling, running, track, triathlon), racket sports (tennis, badminton, squash), other sports (curling, ice hockey, field hockey, golf) will be front and centre as well as emerging disciplines such as dodgeball and e-Sports.
WorldPride Human Rights Conference 2021
In 2009 Copenhagen hosted the World Outgames Human Rights Conference and did an exceptional job. A lot has changed since then, and I am sure this is one conference you will want to attend. The 2021 conference will be a milestone in our modern fight for LGBTQ rights. It will bring us together and amplify the voices of the LGBTQ activists and pride organizers from all over the world and all walks of life.
New to the WorldPride Human Rights conference will be special workshops and lectures designed specifically for athletes, coaches and support teams to better combat discrimination on their teams and in their leagues. Giving the knowledge and tools necessary to help shape a safer and more inclusive space on and off the sporting environment.
The Danes, will mark 2021 with five important anniversaries in their nation's LGBTQ history.
70th anniversary: The world’s first successful genital reconstructive surgery was performed in Denmark in 1951
50th anniversary: A Danish chapter of the Gay Liberation Front was founded in 1971
40th anniversary: Denmark removed homosexuality from its official list of mental illnesses in 1981
25th anniversary: The first Copenhagen Pride was celebrated in 1996 when Copenhagen also hosted EuroPride
15th anniversary: Danish lesbians and bisexual women obtained the right to assisted reproduction in 2006
With this in mind, we know all the stops will be brought out to make this WorldPride Celebration memorable and very special. Copenhagen is expected over 60,000 marchers in the WorldPride Parade and over 500,000 spectators from all over the world. You can expect world class cultural performances, mega circuit parties, to more intimate street parties and club events.
