Reykjavik Pride is the biggest annual event in Iceland and is fondly referred to as "the world's biggest small Pride!"

Reykjavik Pride has been an annual event in Reykjavik since 1999, with the first Reykjavik Pride Parade taking place in August 2000. However, its history goes back to 1993, when Icelandic gays and lesbians first gathered in Reykjavik's city center, demanding freedom and human rights. Protestors gathered again in 1994.

Reykjavik Pride is organized and held by the not-for-profit organization Hinsegin dagar í Reykjavik – Reykjavík Pride. Any profit or surplus funds the organization raises are used to improve the events and support the LGBT+ communities.
