Eat, drink and be merry during CPH Pride Week

It’s that time of the year again when thousands of people take to the streets of Copenhagen to celebrate diversity and express solidarity with the LGBT community.

Following a 20-year-old tradition, the much-awaited pride parade is set to kick off on Saturday August 19 from its starting point at Frederiksberg Town Hall Square.

Like Airbnb for foodies
But as no celebration is complete without friendly interactions and delectable food, TastePlease Copenhagen – a global platform that brings together like-minded people through food – will be officially sponsoring Copenhagen Pride Week 2017.

“TastePlease is like Airbnb for foodies. You can become a host, offer to prepare a nice meal and post about your event on the website. If someone is interested in meeting up and tasting the food, they will send you a request to join the event and pay a small amount,” explained Morgan Thomas, the manager of taste relations at TastePlease.

“In this way, you not only get to taste food from all over the world, but also get to interact with people from different backgrounds and nationalities.”

Time to tickle those taste buds!
For those interested in becoming a part of the Pride Week, TastePlease offers a platform through which people can open their hearts and doors to people of all colours, origins and sexual orientations and bring them together at the dining table.

“It’s a way of showing to the world how open-minded and welcoming our city can be,” Thomas added.

Brunch and bubbles – with love
To make the Pride Week special, Raz and Kristian – a Danish couple – are inviting guests to sign up for their event, ‘Pride Brunch’.

Comprising freshly-baked bread, homemade breakfast cake, salmon, eggs, fruits, jam, cheese, coffee, tea and, of course, bubbles, the brunch will provide both locals and internationals a chance to meet each other, enjoy good food and experience some Danish hygge in a unique, love-filled environment.

    Internationals in Denmark rarely join a trade union

    Internationals are overrepresented in the lowest-paid fields of agriculture, transport, cleaning, hotels and restaurants, and construction – industries that classically lack collective agreements. A new analysis from the Workers’ Union’s Business Council suggests that internationals rarely join trade unions – but if they did, it would generate better industry standards.
