The internationally reknown Amsterdam Gay Pride returns to the Dutch capital at the end of July for more than a week of parties, screenings, exhibitions, debates and, of course, the Canal Parade!

Amsterdam Gay Pride celebrates diversity & acceptance

Since 1996, the various organisers of Amsterdam Gay Pride have sought to celebrate the vibrant LGBT community in the Netherlands.

Beginning as a small, one-day event, Pride has expanded to an entire week, attracting more than 500.000 visitors from the Netherlands and abroad. 

Initially founded as a way to provide visibility, the event has become increasingly inclusive, addressing various issues within the LGBT community including conflicting elements of identity, negotiating relationships between religion and sexuality, the state of transgenders and bisexuals, care for LGBT seniors and the acceptance of various fetish communities. 

However, the event remains cheerful and culminates in the grand Canal Parade on the waterways of the Prinsengracht where the party overflows from the boats to the streets!

With a diverse mix of events and parties around the city, Amsterdam Gay Pride looks to welcome everyone regardless of sexuality to join in the festivities!
