Reykjavík gay pride

So, as it turns out, the gay pride parade is one of the biggest events of the year in our little city. 50,000 people were there yesterday on a beautiful summer day to watch it go through downtown! The parade was also followed by a concert with many artists.

You'll have to excuse the quality of the photos as they were taken from a sub-optimal spot (lighting-wise) and with a small camera. Also it's not always easy dodging the heads of the people in front of you.

Crowds!

Interesting look

Arab costumes (there is a belly dancer behind them)

Woolen bikinis???

A lot of balloons
