In this unique partnership spearheaded by Happy Copenhagen, the City of Copenhagen has coupled with World OutGames Miami to strengthen the ties between the two cities as diverse and vibrant tourist destinations. Focusing on happiness and livability, both Copenhagen and Miami are beacons of LGBTQI equality and inclusivity.
Over the years, Denmark has been consistently championing the cause of LGBTQI equality, being the first country in the world to recognize same-sex unions back in 1989 and the first country in the world to remove transgender people from its list of mental illnesses in 2017.
As the capital of Denmark, Copenhagen is known for its open-mindedness and diversity – and the city was named the most LGBTQ friendly travel destination in 2014 by Lonely Planet. No matter who you are and who you love, you are welcome in Copenhagen!
Join us at the Copenhagen OutCity Village
Make sure you stop by the Copenhagen OutCities Village to get a glimpse of what makes Copenhagen such an incredible city. Bringing the best of Danish culture to Miami, the OutCity village will cater to your imagination and give you an idea of just why Denmark is the happiest country on earth and why Copenhagen continues to top the lists of most livable cities.
Supported by the City of Copenhagen and the Capital Region of Denmark, Happy Copenhagen will be representing Copenhagen at the OutCity Village along with Danish companies, cultural institutions and organizations to provide an exciting and laid-back retreat for athletes and other participants at World OutGames Miami.

Friday, May 26 – Sunday, June 4, 2017 | Visit the renowned Georg Stage
The visit by the Danish training ship Georg Stage to Museum Park Miami, from Friday, May 26 - Sunday, May 28, 2017, is not to be missed. With its crew of 15 officers and 63 trainees between the ages of 17 and 23, Georg Stage is not only the world’s smallest full rigged ship, but also the oldest civilian training ship in the world – it has trained young Scandinavians for a life at sea since 1882.
Open for all and free of charge, you are invited to explore this part of Denmark’s proud nautical heritage. On-board the ship, you can experience a podcast-walk (hyperlink to landing page under ART & ARCHITECTURE Sex and the Sea) from the most recent exhibition at the Danish Maritime Museum in Elsinore. The 45-minute podcast-walk contains tales about love and intimacy, of passionate affairs and cold-hearted broads, of despondent, wistful daydreams and magic encounters: About a girl who must seek hire under the guise of being a boy, about a boy who went off to sea in the hope of learning to love women, but ended up marrying the chief mate. It is an ode to the ancient myths of sirens and mermaids and the curious seafarer.
In addition, come on board and meet the Director of the Georg Stage, who will be hosting some on-board lectures on the history of the ship and Danish Maritime history.
