BAR BUKA: WHERE GIRLS MEET

The lesbian community is unfortunately underrepresented in Amsterdam’s LGBTQI+ scene. We want to show the beauty and diversity of the lesbian community during Amsterdam Pride 2022. At Bar Buka, who you are is good enough, no matter what you look like or how you identify yourself. The feeling of togetherness, sociability and fun in the bar we want to imitate on our boat.

From butches to femmes and androgynous lesbians, to non-binary people and trans women. Everyone is welcome. That’s why our boat concept is called “BAR BUKA: WHERE GIRLS MEET”.

You take a look inside our bar. How does it feel to taste the atmosphere of the nicest lesbian bar in the Netherlands? We are going to build a runway with a replica of the bar on it. This bar on a boat will attract different guests from within the community, so we want to ensure the rich diversity within our community. From biker butches of colour to drag kings and alternative femmes, trans business women to creative queers and your everyday lesbian ladies.

Our entertainment also helps to show diversity. In their own way, they are representative of different gender and sexuality expressions within our community. In addition, we want to address different lesbian terms through signs and texts on the side of the boat and that people hold, such as TOMBOY, FEMME and GOLD STAR.

These are some of the names of the cocktails from our bar. Our main decoration will be in the colours of the Sapphic pride flag. These colours stand for the different gender expressions and sexual orientations within our community.
