Public support for the local LGBT movement is most evident at Faroe Pride which always takes place on 27 July, the day before the national holiday Ólavsøka. Around 10% of the population take part in the annual parade.
The parade is a lively community-building event and is followed by a free concert featuring some of the biggest names in music from the Faroe Islands.
The annual parade starts by the national football stadium, Tórsvøllur and continues downtown where it all accumulates with a large free outdoor concert outside Faroese Parliament and the Major´s Office.
Everyone is free to join the parade and enjoy the free concert – regardless of their sexual orientation or identity.
