CIRQUE DU QUEER

In 2022, the Castle Boat will sail during the Amsterdam Pride for the 16th time.

The Kasteelboot is a private initiative of friends which started sailing in 2005. By friends, for friends & for friends of friends. Everyone has at least 1 acquaintance on board, a kind of Buddy. But because it has been a group of friends for years, this buddy system only applies to people who sail with us for the first time.

Everyone is welcome, so there are many different genders on board.

Although gender identity is a serious matter, we use the theme of the pride with a wink. The boat is dressed as a circus tent from the imaginary “Cirque Du Queer”. The people on board are allowed to be themselves and dress accordingly, and all outfits are allowed to be extravagant.
