As I Am - lgbt in cph

The history of Copenhagen’s gay, lesbian, bisexual, transexual and transvestite population.
From July 4th to September 29th 2009.


The history of Copenhagen’s homosexuals, bisexuals and transpersons tells of a journey from secretive nightly meetings on the city ramparts to sequined Pride parades on the City Square.

The Museum of Copenhagen had a look at the many different aspects of Copenhagen’s LGBT history. Capital punishment and AIDS campaigns, invisible spinsters and proud rainbow mums, covert companionships and the world’s first same-sex legal unions.
