Capital Pride Celebration

The Norwegian Embassy in Washington participated in the 2022 Capital Pride parade on Saturday, June 11.

Embassy employees marched alongside their Nordic colleagues from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, and Sweden. This year's celebration was particularly special, because it was the first fully in-person parade since the pandemic first struck. 

The Embassy was proud to demonstrate Norway’s commitment to LGBTQ+ rights while celebrating with the rest of the city. As Norway’s King Harald V said in 2016, “Norwegians are girls who love girls, boys who love boys, and boys and girls who love each other.”
