Celebrating Diversity

Visibility of the LGBTIQ+ community requires continuous attention and in times of Corona, this is harder than ever. Last year many events couldn’t take place and even now there is not much certainty when and under what kind of conditions we are able to start our production. At the beginning of May we will make the decision about the Canal Parade, but that there will be a Pride is one thing that’s certain. We can’t let our 25th anniversary uncelebrated! For example, there will be a photo exhibition on Museumplein and we will make a special anniversary photo book. For both, we are calling on professional and amateur photographers to submit meaningful and iconic photos that match 25 years of Pride Amsterdam.

Take Pride in us

The theme of Pride Amsterdam 2021 is “TAKE PRIDE in us”. Unfortunately, it is still not common to be different and is it still necessary to work towards an inclusive Dutch society. ‘’I am thinking of a society in which your gender/sex/gender-orientation shouldn’t matter and is simply a given”, says director Lucien Spee of Pride Amsterdam. “That is why everyone who is different from the hetero norm should feel invited to be noticed and to be visible during Pride Amsterdam. Together we would like to convince all the heterosexuals of the Netherlands to be proud of us.”
