Most Attended Gay Pride Parade in Iceland to Date

The Icelandic Gay Pride Festival Parade took place for the tenth time on Saturday and according to organizers, there have never been more people participating. Police estimate that there were between 30,000 and 40,000 people in downtown Reykjavík on Saturday.

“There were 90,000 to 100,000 people in town. Either the police can’t count or they are counting wrong deliberately,” managing director of Gay Pride Iceland Heimir Már Pétursson told Fréttabladid.

Pétursson however said that he was satisfied with the work of the police during the Gay Pride Festival. “We were faced with a bomb threat and police were obviously well prepared. We took notice and were happy with it.”
