GAYGUIDE 2017/2018 FREE GUIDE


WELCOME TO COPENHAGEN We are lucky, that we live in Denmark

Carsten Volden

DENMARK is a country where we have the right to vote for the Social Democrats or the Conservatives, if we share their opinions. We can get married with the one we love, whether it is a woman or a man. We can choose to get an education and a career, no matter what skin color we have. We can practice our religion, whether we are Muslims or Christians…

2 Copenhagen Gay Guide 2017/2018

and we can choose not to believe in anything. Unfortunately, very few countries in the world has this degree of freedom. The right to be 'who we are' and also participate in the public debate, with what we contain – religion, gender, political sense of belonging and sexuality – as a starting point, has been a special Danish value for many years now. The right to love – without limitations, without preconceptions – has not come by itself. Many people, organizations, and businesses fought this battle before us – and for us. Rainbow Business Denmark work to support the LGBT-community in Denmark – we aim to make Denmark a more tolerant and diverse society still. To support our work, you can join our organization at: www.rainbowbusinessdenmark.dk Thank you for being interested in the Danish LGBT-community. I hope you will enjoy the different venues presented in this guide to the Copenhagen Gay life. Carsten Volden Chairman, Rainbow Business Denmark

SHOPPING IN COPENHAGEN DANISH DESIGN, whether it is furniture or clothing, is characterised by its clean, simple lines, great materials and classic creations that never go out of style. Copenhagen offers a huge variety of shopping possibilities spread over different areas in the city. In the Inner City of Copenhagen you will find flagship stores by leading Danish fashion designers such as Mads Nørgaard, Henrik Vibskov, and Wood Wood. Copenhagen is also a great place to shop interior design. The gay-owned shop Nordic Nesting in Studiestræde 51 has a broad selection of Danish and other Nordic designs, both classic and new brands. At Illums Bolighus you can also find a big selection of Danish design classics, and nearby you find the flag stores of Royal Copenhagen porcelain. Georg Jensen silverware, Hay modern and colourful designs, and Stilleben ceramics. Both design and fashion is available at Copenhagen’s two big department stores, Magasin du Nord and ILLUM.

In 2016, ILLUM was named one of the world’s most spectacular department stores by the New York based Travel + Leisure magazine. If you are more into small and quirky shops, move away from the pedestrian streets and explore the smaller streets in the Inner City and areas like Vesterbro, Nørrebro and Østerbro.

BEACHES & CRUISING Amager Fælled At Amager Fælled gay men have sex year-round, but many gays also come to sunbathe during summer. Go to Zigøjnerpladsen, situated near the parking lot at the beginning of Lossepladsvej after entering from Artillerivej. Amager Strandpark Amager Strandpark has a long sandy beach, but if you prefer to avoid sand, go to Helgoland at the northern end of Amager Strandpark. However, Helgoland is only open to the public from May till September. The nearest Metro station is called Øresund. Bellevue Strandpark A few metres from Klampenborg station, a short train ride from the city centre you will find this lovely beach. The northern end of the beach is a combined nude and gay beach. Ishøj Strand Beach park south of Copenhagen with some gay action. From Ishøj Station it is a 1.5 km walk or bicycle trip to the beach.

The gay section is between Pilehuset and Lynghuset. Tisvildeleje Strand Tisvildeleje is 60 km from Copenhagen. A beautiful and fairly secluded beach with action in the dunes and pines. From Tisvildeleje Station walk down the hill towards the beach. After the beach parking lot, follow the coastline for about half an hour until you see fewer straight families and more gay men. Ørstedsparken (#25 on the city map) The busiest and most central cruising area. During the day cruising primarily takes place around the public toilets. From sunset till early morning the cruising is all over the park, but particularly around the trees on both sides of the bridge in the middle of the park. Occasionally gay and bisexual men are attacked at night and in the early morning. Be careful and don’t hesitate to contact the police. Copenhagen Police are strongly committed in the fight against hate crimes.

COPENHAGEN PRIDE 2017 COPENHAGEN PRIDE is one of the biggest annual events in Copenhagen. Besides all the fun and festivities, the main goal of Copenhagen Pride is to make the LGBTQ community more visible and promote diversity and equality. In 2016, Copenhagen celebrated its 20th anniversary, and in 2017 the Pride Week takes place from 15-20 August,

with lots of spectacular rainbow events around town. During these days, you can attend political debates, watch films, attend free outdoor concerts, enjoy what is now Europe’s biggest drag show or join all the parties and of course the big parade, which takes place on Saturday, 19 August. Please find updated programme information at: copenhagenpride.dk

Since 1986, MIX Copenhagen has screened films that aim to question and explore gender, sexuality and sexual boundaries, and reflect a diverse and changing world. MIX Copenhagen selects films that

have the potential to push personal and societal expectations, and work towards increasing the global visibility of LGBTQI+ stories in film and media. The 32st MIX Copenhagen LGBT Film Festival will run from 27 October – 5 November 2017 Join us in the dark and keep updated at: mixcopenhagen.dk Facebook: MIX Copenhagen Instagram: mixcopenhagen Copenhagen Gay Guide 2017/2018 31
