Copenhagen Pride

Copenhagen Pride - Candy Man

The Pride concept is that people should be proud of their sexual orientation and gender identity. The Pride movement has its origins in America where gay population was persecuted by the police. The whole thing started in New York, in the bar Stonewall Inn on Christopher Street where in 1969 the gay people fought back NYPD making a statement about their sexuality; this moment was later celebrated in US and many other countries.
