Dreary weather did little to dampen the enthusiasm at the annual Copenhagen Pride Parade. 
 
According to organisers, more than 110,000 residents turned out to the view the parade, and more than 21,000 took part in the festive march from Frederiksberg to Copenhagen’s Town Hall Square. 
 
 
“When we see that Copenhageners demonstrate their support for diversity, love and the LGBT fight, there can be no doubt that we live in the world’s greatest city. We are incredible thankful for all of the Copenhageners’ warm support of Copenhagen Pride,” said parade chairman Lars Henriksen. 
 
The parade was the culmination of several days dedicated to the celebration and acceptance of gay rights.
