Gay Winter Fest to Take Place Next Weekend

Next weekend, the first annual gay winter festival entitled Rainbow Reykjavík will be held in the capital, reports.


The Gay Pride Festival in Reykjavík.

A large group of foreign guests will be attending the festival, which opens next Thursday and runs through February 19th.

“February is quite a slow month in Icelandic tourism and we are always trying to find ways to draw guests here,” said its organizer Eva María Þórarinsdóttir Lange, who runs tour operating company Pink Iceland with her girlfriend Birna Hrönn Björnsdóttir.

“We are in collaboration with the City of Reykjavík, Icelandair and more companies in creating this festival, which will include a variety of events celebrating gay art and culture and Icelandic nature, which of course is the main thing.”

Nineteen gay TV and radio stations, blogs and newspapers will send their representatives to the festival.
