This year’s Gay Pride celebrations officially began yesterday. Although the highlight of the week is the Gay Pride parade itself, there are many other events during the week, including a round table session, concerts and a family event in Viðey on Sunday.

Reykjavík has been celebrating Reykjavík Gay Pride since 1998, and what was once a small and intimate event has now become one of the most happening events in Reykjavík every summer. Nowadays this week-long celebration attracts around 100 thousand visitors to the capital.
