The troubles at Copenhagen Pride continue


More companies have withdrawn their support, like Google, Nykredit, DFDS and TUI. The political leader of Pride, Lars Henriksen, has resigned after 15 years in this position. Why the drama? In a February press release, it was stated that the organization “stands in solidarity with the Palestinian people” and that the organization would express to its partners “concerns about business activities in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories”. Companies withdrawing support have emphasized a wish for Pride to maintain its focus on LGBTQ+ rights, rather than expanding to other geopolitical issues.
