MY COUNTRY, MY PRIDE

Our slogan ‘My Country, My Pride’ is a derivation of the theme by the organisation of Amsterdam Pride. As representatives of the national government we want to show the world that in our country you can be yourself. The National Government stands for it!

The Netherlands is a diverse country where everyone is welcome and allowed to be who they want to be. A country of tolerance and a front runner for equal rights and emancipation. Well done, you might say! In practice, however, this is often perceived differently: in the workplace and in society, discrimination and aggression are still the order of the day.

With our presence we, the LGBTQ+ networks of the central government, show that the central government has an exemplary role as an employer where everyone can be themselves. By participating in the channel parade the central government shows its responsibility as an employer.
