The annual Copenhagen Pride Week isn’t arranged only to entertain rainbow groups but the main goal is the fight to gain more equality for homo-, bi- and transsexuals in Denmark. Promoting the LGBT community through film, discussions and other events during the festival helps to achieve tolerance in the areas where they are still not equivalent to the rest of the society.
