The grand opening took place at Regnbuepladsen (Rainbow Square) at 16:00 (Danish time). The event was located next to Copenhagen City Hall and was also not that far away from the Fan Mile and Eurovision Village. The Eurovicious Pride Square will be open from May 3rd to May 10 from 11:30 (Danish time) until very late.

The organisers of this event are Copenhagen Pride, and they welcomed all LGBT’s (and everyone else for that matter) for the event this afternoon.

” We set up a mini version of Pride Square, where there will be daily celebration, colors , entertainment , fun and debate , and the goal is of course to show the many tourists who come to Copenhagen in the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 that our capital is a diverse and tolerant city where the LGBT community will be both seen and heard” – Lars Henriksen , president of the Copenhagen Pride
