Gay Day at TusenFryd amusement park in Oslo

The first ever Gay Day at Norway’s largest amusement park will take place on the day after the Mr. Gay Europe final in Oslo.

Mr. Gay Europe producers Morten Rudå and Tore Aasheim believe that Gay Day at TusenFryd will be a nice extension to this year’s final. “A family day TusenFryd is both pleasant and fun. It will probably get quite lively on the rides that day, and there will also be entertainment from the stage,” according to Aasheim.

Gay Day could become an annual event, according to TusenFryd managing director Thomas Nygård. He says that Gay Day will not to be a typical “pride event”, but confirms that TusenFryd will give the visiting gays and lesbians some extra attention on the day. “We hope that everyone brings their girlfriends, boyfriends, children, friends and family. TusenFryd is a park for the whole family,” Nygård says in a press release.
