“Together: We are strong”

The motto of this year’s Pride “Together” also applies to our group – after all, we help newcomers in Amsterdam to feel at home in a new city and a new country: a doctor, lawyer, housing, friends, social events – we exchange all kinds of information on our social media platforms on Facebook, Instagram and TikTok.

So together we stand strong and offer a helping hand to queer internationals. We want to present this philosophy on our boat. We literally and figuratively will reach out and shake each other’s hands to symbolize the help we offer. In the end we all came to Amsterdam hoping to live freely in this beautiful city – but we left friends and family behind and have to now build a new community here. It cannot be a coincidence that the words “Together” and “LGBTQAI+” contain the same number of characters – we want to allude to this fact, because everyone is important in our community: Lesbians and Gays, Queers and BIs, Inter- and A-sexuals and certainly all those who want to be the plus: supporters, allies, straight people – all are welcome, because: Together we are strong!

As in previous years, we look forward to interacting with the Amsterdam audience on the canal sides and bridges included in the parade with our famous dance routine set to a theme song.
