A record number of attendees of over 30K gathered for Copenhagen Pride Week 2018 parade Saturday, 18th of August, on the streets of Danish capital. 

As the event becomes more popular each year, and part of  the city mainstream culture, we are focusing on how #cphpride18 looks like from this perspective, through the lenses of smartphone reporters and participants on IndieFrame App.

Politicians took part in the event to show support and meet the participants, adding a great deal of media coverage to the event, whilst raising questions about sporadic politicization of sexual minority rights and lifestyle.
