In 2014 we celebrate Reykjavik Pride for the sixteenth time. Our cozy little pride, originally visited by some fifteen hundred onlookers, has blossomed and evolved into a colourful six day celebration that attracts up to 100 thousand guests from all over the world. Reykjavík Pride is, in fact, one of the biggest little Prides in the world.

Reykjavik Pride is an unquestionably important event for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in Iceland. The festival promotes visibility and courage and provides us with a platform to manifest our pride before our fellow citizens. The celebrations do not only mark a successful stage in our struggle; Reykjavik Pride is also one of the most vibrant and popular events in Reykjavík’s cultural calendar. By participating in the event in such large numbers, the Icelandic people have shown us valuable support, recognition and respect.

Gay pride's board and volunteers are currently working on programming the 2014 Reykjavik Pride, which will run from  5–10 August. The Gay Pride Parade will take place on the final day, Saturday August 10th.

Information will be made public on Reykjavik pride website and on the Facebook page as we draw nearer to the festival. In the meantime, feel free to contact Reykjavik Pride via our online form or find Reykjavik Pride on Facebook.
