Amsterdam Gay Pride becomes Europride
Every year a different city in Europe receives the honor to organize EuroPride. In 2016 it was Amsterdam, so the Amsterdam Gay Pride organizers prepared an extra large and extra special edition. Also Pink Saturday, an event that is held in a different Dutch city every year, came to Amsterdam. This made EuroPride grow out to a larger festival with a total of 15 days and 3 weekends!

The theme: ‘JOIN our freedom, feel free to join us’
With this message Amsterdam is aiming at all European countries, and of course especially at countries where people can not be themselves yet, or where human rights are under pressure. Amsterdam calls on everybody in Europe (and beyond), to come and celebrate freedom together and to come and feel free in a country where you can be yourself and love whoever you want.
