Winner Pink Lieverdje 2014 “Amsterdam Gay Pride is still needed. It is a celebration of freedom. How can you be against that? The gay rights movement is never done and visibility is essential in order to be accepted. Drag Queens and transvestites by their striking appearance often the target of discrimination and violence. I want to be free in being who and what I am. I don’t want to be judged, because I am more than a guy in a dress. My aim is that I will commit myself to obtain a safer environment for Drag Queens and transvestites, but also for a more pleasant world. ”
