The diversity and aim of the different events create opportunities to target different groups within and outside our community, including politicians, activists, media, government officials, and the general public, and bring them together to create awareness, understanding and give everybody the possibility to broaden their horizons and take action.

The three-day conference (as part of Copenhagen 2021 WorldPride & EuroGames) takes place in a hybrid form with physical elements for participants in person and full online access to content sessions, to facilitate the engagement of as many people as possible. The program consists of special statements by high-level officials and community members, eight plenaries, over 50 Break Out Sessions, four Sphere Sessions, networking sessions and meet and greets.

Content is being curated in ten topics:

– Politics and Law

– Borders, Decolonization and Racism

– Technology and Online Communities

– Arts, Sports and Culture

– Pride as a global Human Rights Movement
