What is Nørrebro Pride?
Our purpose with Nørrebro Pride is to give visibility to Nørrebro's LGBTQ + environment. We will celebrate all the local forces that work tirelessly to create spaces where LGBTQ + people get the opportunity to identify their own feelings and beings without having to explain, justify or apologize.
Nørrebro Pride puts BIPoC (Black/Indigenous/People of Colour) to the front, and is an anti-commercial grassroot based organisation. We organize against homonationalism, and emphasize that not all LGBTQ + persons are white, cis and able-bodied; some are non-binary, have one or more handicaps, are religious, don't have citizenship, are sex workers, people who still don't know who they are but know they are not part of the norm.
What do we want? Queer liberation! When do we want it? Now!

Theme of the year – Home
This year’s Nørrebro Pride has a theme. The aim of the theme is to explore how different issues affects our communities. This year we have chosen the theme ‘home’.

Let us together examine the local and global forces that shape what we call home. Who gets the right to have a home? What kind of people have a right to claim a home? Home is often defined white heteronormativity, but who are all of the other people that do not fit in to that box? What do we have to leave behind to be welcomed home? How can we reclaim home? What does home mean if you cannot leave it, are forced to stay in it, or do not have access to it? How do we keep our cultures and histories alive when separated from our roots?

Let’s politicise and create discussions around how we within local geographies can resist how structures of racism, class, accessibility, gender and sexuality determine what we call home!

We ask the groups part of the Nørrebro Pride process, to think about how the issue of ‘home’ plays out in your organisation/collective, and if you could imagine doing and event/workshop/intervention during the Pride under this theme. Here are some aspects we had in mind:

The Ghetto Plan
Social housing (Almen Modstand)
Deportation and border regimes
Adoptee justice
Accessibility
Homelessness and hostile architecture
Criminalisation, police and public space
Space-keeping, space-holding
Anti-gentrification in Nørrebro and globally
Chosen families and queer architecture
Migration, diaspora, displacement and belonging
Climate justice and ownership of the Earth
The body as home: Autonomy of the body in the presence heterosexist violence
