The 16th annual Gay Pride parade took place on Saturday with over 90 thousand people in attendance. The parade started by the BSÍ Bus Terminal and made its way along Sóleyjargata, passed the pond and ended by Arnarhóll hill where a huge crowd enjoyed the annual Gay Pride concert.

Around thirty floats were part of this year’s parade, the last one being without a doubt the most magnificent: A white sequin swan the size of a house.
