Tips & Tricks

TEKST: ANDERS S. MORTENSEN

4th October

Rainbowfestival in Malmö

This must be one of the worlds

latest prides if you consider the

ever shifting Nordic climate.

But don’t let this hold you

back from participating in the

Swedish city Malmö’s very own

pride “Regnbågsfestivalen”

taking place in the beginning of

this month. All it takes is a little

more than half an hours ride

across the bridge and it’s party

time with the Swedes!

The parade takes place the

4th of October but in the week

before a lot of things for both

gays and lesbians take place all

over the city. The grand fi nal

party is held Saturday night

after the parade. For more info

type into www.rfslmalmo.se or

ask at the tourist offi ce at the

Malmö’s central station.

10th October

The Night of Culture

One of the most popular

traditions in Copenhagen is the

annual “Kulturnat”. All Friday

night the 10th of October shops,

museums and other cultural

institutions have long opening

hours with special events taking

place all over the city and a

packed program of something

for everybody. Among the

more gay specifi c events, visit

Heaven bar which has special

arrangement all night, or the

National Association for Gays

and Lesbians LBL which has

open house-arrangement with

tours all night.

17th-26th October

The Copenhagen Gay & Lesbian

Film Festival

Together with the Mermaid

Pride in August the Copenhagen

Gay & Lesbian Film Festival

is one of the largest events for

gays and lesbians in Denmark.

With homosexually themed

short fi lms, feature fi lms and

documentaries from all over the

world Copenhagen’s oldest fi lm

festival takes place from the

middle of October. The program

is already out from the beginning

of the month and there is a

run for the tickets so be sure to

book your tickets in good time.

In the recent year the festival

despite its name has also had

showings in Århus, Malmö and

Ålborg. In Copenhagen the

festival takes place mainly at

the Film House’s “Cinematek”

on Gothersgade but there will

also be showings in other of

the city’s many movie theatres.

The Israeli fi lm “Yossi&Jagger” is just one of many

movies shown at the Copenhagen Gay & Lesbian

Film Festival.

Look for the program at bars

and cafés or visit www.cglff.dk

for more details.
