Iceland’s Gay Pride Festival, or ‘Hinsegin Dagar’ (Different Days) kicks off for its eighth gay year on Wednesday, August the 9th with a gay drag show at Gaukur Á Stöng. The following day, there is a gay walk in support of gay literature at Reykjavík’s finest gay library. That night, the gay music competition the extremely gay Páll Óskar once gayly referred to as “the gay Christmas Eve,” the Eurovision Song Contest, will be celebrated at NASA by a couple of gay bands playing gay covers of all those gay Eurovision songs.
Friday the 11th will see the formal gay opening show, with several gay bands playing well into the gayness of the night at the exremely gay Loftkastalinn. The gay fun then continues with a gay guys’ dance party at Pravda and a gay girls’ dance party at Þjóðleikhúskjallarinn at midnight.
The gay festivities will culminate on Saturday the 12th in a massively gay walk down gay Laugavegur to a mini-festival of gay music on gay Lækjargata. The gayness will undoubtedly reach its gayest point with a gay service at Hallgrímskirkja church that same afternoon at the gay hour of 16:00.
So go downtown, grab a bottle of Veuve, get glittered up, liquored up and ready to party gayly straight into the gay dawn, that is to say if you’re not gay enough to avoid being drunk under the table by someone gayer than yourself, for beware, the gayness will truly abound in Reykjavík these next nights, and anyone willing to take a gay man (or woman) up on a gay bet, might just find themselves in a deep trough of gay trouble, because, as a wiser man than myself once said, “When the going gets gay, the gay get going,” and I’ll be damned if anyone’s going to have a shot at putting a halt to all the gayness flowing through the even-gayer-than-usual streets of our fair gay city.
