The OVLG was the only hospital that participated in the boat parade for years. Participation makes sense for OLVG because they are THE city hospital for the Amsterdam citizen. A place where many LGBTIs come as patients or visitors, but also where many LGBTI employees work. They see diversity as an enrichment of their hospital. That is why they not only sail along with the boat parade, last year they also discussed diversity in health care during the Pride Talkshow, which they organized with external organizations and employees. Through the Heroes theme, they put their colleagues at the emergency department in the spotlight.
