What could go wrong…?
Copenhagen chosen to host WorldPride in 2021
Danish capital also bidding to organise EuroGames in same year. Final decision is due in March 2018
The biennial event is the world’s largest LGBT festival and is expected to attract hundreds of thousands of visitors. New York is set to host the event in 2019, and previous hosting cities include Madrid (2017), London, Rome, Toronto and Jerusalem.
Malmö on board
The bid had the full support of the Danish government as well as the city of Malmö, which is expected to play a part in co-hosting.
In April it was reported that Malmö had contributed 800,000 kroner to the bid, but that the Swedish city’s exact role in the event would only be illuminated if Copenhagen was chosen to host.
