We start the bike ride in beautiful Nyhavn where H. C. Andersen lived (the Danish author who was obviously gay even though he never told anyone). Then, we continue through Christiansborg Palace Square to the area around the City Hall Square (Rådhuspladsen) where Copenhagen Pride is held. Did you know this is where the first gay couple Axel Axgil and Eigil Axgil married in 1989?
We continue through the spectacular Copenhagen nightlife district where the Drag Queens share their personal funny and slightly forbidden stories. We will take a short break near Ørstedparken, a Copenhagen park known for it’s dirty gay secrets (psst! The Queens will let you in on them!) while we take in the special atmosphere of the Copenhagen nightlife.
Among the (in Denmark) world famous Drag Queens you’ll get the pleasure of meeting is chubby Bryhildr, the bearded Queen, who insists on having both the highest heels and the highest hair in the business and Di Di Cancerella who’s either riding the bike smoking or heavily debating why Drag Queens are to be seen as ordinary people. Also, Harley Queen, self-nominated best cyclist of Copenhagen, and sweet girl next door Britney Corvette are guiding this tour. We promise a full trip of entertainment.
