Gay Guide Denmark
Denmark is a very open and tolerant country, even more so than its also very liberal Scandinavian neighbours. To be a bit "different" has almost been a tradition and is simply part of life for the Danes - you take a lot of things with a lot of humour. This attitude is also reflected in the laws: The national association for gays and lesbians (LBL) was founded in 1948, was the first organisation of its kind and enforced anti-discrimination laws early on. In 1989, Denmark was the first country in the world to introduce same-sex partnerships, and gradually these registered partnerships were put on an equal footing with marriage until the rights were fully equal - including adoption. In 2012, the newly elected Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt legalised gay marriage and became the first Danish Prime Minister to take part in the Copenhagen Pride Parade. The age of consent is 15. Denmark is one of the few countries in the world where the possession of poppers is prohibited and can be punished by a fine. Most homosexual visitors usually go to Copenhagen, which is an obvious choice due to the lively gay scene and the relaxed atmosphere. In addition to the cities, Denmark also has endless coastline that invites you to relax and long walks This interesting country is defenitely worth a visit and its friendly and helpful inhabitants, who always meet you with a good-natured wink.
