Proud of Pride Parade
A record number of people gathered downtown on Saturday for Reykjavík Pride Parade. Mayor Dagur B. Eggertsson was delighted with how well-attended the parade was. Year after year, it has attracted tens of thousands of people.
“This is always getting larger and larger, better and better, and everyone participates. That, I think, is special for Iceland,” the mayor proudly told mbl.is. “Not only is this one of the largest and most popular annual festivals in Reykjavík, but it also simply makes the city a better city, because this fight [for equal rights] generates an atmosphere of tolerance. The message is that whoever you are, you can be yourself.”
