Pride 2019 is finished and we look back to 9 fantastic days. We started the week with an impressive Pride Walk and a loving Pride Park, our Pride was added to the Inventory of Intangible Heritage of the Netherlands and with the new rules around the boat parade we made sure that the canal became ours again and we could enjoy everything passing by.

Unfortunately, there were also some painful moments and incidents where we were treated aggressively and insultingly by people who don’t seem to see the value of diversity and who don’t want to accept that in our city you can be who you are and love the one you want. That hurts but we continue and we will be back next year celebrating Pride from July 25 to August 2, 2020
