I can be a new-to-Denmark blogger again because I just moved to Aarhus (everybody cheer!)
What better way to show you what I have been up to than some photos of the Aarhus Pride event?
I had forgotten that it was Pride today but I had to catch several buses for an open day at work and they all had the Danish flag and the rainbow flag mounted on the side.
The event was really quite sweet and small. No massive floats or anything. There was a family friendly fete (pictured) and some other stalls down some steps with more adult themed stalls (for example: the bar). I even got a free hug from someone giving them out at one of the stalls.
There was live music and all that sort of thing.
When the parade came past, what surprised me was that for every ‘special interest’ group that represented and walked together, there were groups of political parties waving the rainbow flag.
I am not sure if I could imagine Pride in a city in the UK having a big Labour float or a Lib Dem contingent. Maybe it would, I never managed to make it to one back in the old country.
My favourite sign was
Fuck ‘girl colours’
Fuck ‘boy colours’
What happened to *HUMAN* colours.
