Gay Guide Greenland

Greenland is not only the world's largest island that is not a continent, but also the least populated country or administrative region in the world. Greenland is no longer regarded as a colony since 1953, but as another administrative district of Denmark that is in principle equal to the others. In 1979, the Greenlanders' resistance to the Danish administration led to internal autonomy. In 1996, Greenland became the fourth country in the world to introduce registered partnerships, thanks to its links with Denmark. Gay marriage was introduced in 2016 and joint adoption is now also possible for homosexuals as well. The first CSD in Nuuk in 2010 brought together over a thousand participants, making it the second largest demonstration ever held in the country. There are only very few places in Greenland where gay men can meet. This is mainly due to the small population but also to the long, dark winters and lack of roads, as boats are the main means of transport. The internet has become the most popular medium for social contacts. There is only one gay-friendly location in Nuuk.
