It was a fantastic day. The Pride parade is the highlight of Oslo Pride and we are so proud that so many wanted to participate in this important event together with us, “says Fredrik Dreyer, Festival Director in Oslo Pride.

This year’s Oslo Pride has hit several records. Never before have so many people been in the various parts of Oslo Pride. Pride House has had a record numbers with over 2350 visitors. Pride Art, which had the last show, Sunday, July 2nd, has never had so many exhibitions at the Rådhusgalleriet.

We’ve had a very strong program this year, this are reflected in the numbers of visitors at Pride House and Pride Art, says Dreyer.

This would not have been possible without the 50 full-time volunteers and over 250 volunteers who work during the ten days Oslo Pride are held. I’m so proud of them all, says Dreyer.
