We keep the rainbow flag flying – Ruka Ski Pride history
The first Ruka Ski Pride took place in spring 2016, and it was the first GLBTIQ skiing event ever arranged in Finland. The first event was held in collaboration with Finnish human rights advocacy organisation SETA and DTM Helsinki, a famous gay night club in Helsinki, Finland. In the first event, around 500 people came to join the celebration, and over 200 skiers/snowboarders took part in the Ski Pride parade.
Ruka Ski Pride received a lot of positive feedback, and that sealed the deal: the event was here to stay. This spring the festival will take over the ski resort even bigger and better than before.
