The municipality of Amsterdam has decided not to choose the obvious heroes, but to put the everyday heroes of Amsterdam in the spotlight on our boat. These are the ‘Working Class Heroes’: people who do things for society and city that are too often taken for granted. Or what other Amsterdammers say: ‘aren’t they getting paid to do that?’ The people who do things so that every year a nice Pride can be enjoyed. The love for this everyday hero is the theme of the Amsterdam boat and is in line with the motto ‘take care of each other and this lovely city’.
