Love in Copenhagen: Love, Music, and Diversity


By Lynn De La Cruz

In this second video of four-episode Web series, the winners of a trip to Denmark experience the Eurovision Song Contest.

In the previous installment of their European adventure, Michael and Mark, who won a trip to Denmark through the #ValidateYourLove video contest, enjoyed iconic landmarks in Copenhagen.

The latest episode features the couple in awe of Eurovision, the European song contest that was won by drag artist Conchita Wurst. The loving couple dressed in colorful clothes to show their support for Denmark.

Standing outside as eclectically dressed audience members walk by, Michael says, “I think it’s the perfect place to enjoy Eurovision. The world is welcome here.”

Mark describes the crowd as a “crazy mix between Halloween and a gay day parade in San Francisco … mixed up with the United Nations.”

Watch their experience below and stay tuned for two more videos that document their Danish adventure.
