Participant Categories

Because in recent years there has been a discussion about the orientation and social involvement of different participants, a new classification of the participant categories has been made in 2018. The new classification does more justice to everybody’s part in the struggle for the emancipation of LGBTIs and the support for our Pride.


Pride Business Club

In 2018 we established a ‘Pride Business Club‘. Companies who are not directly associated with the LGBT community can only participate in the canal parade if they are members. This way, we want to involve them more in the emancipation part of Pride and at the same time create a network of professionals that support us both financially as and in terms of content. A maximum of two contacts are registered per membership and will be invited for the meetings and activities. Membership costs € 1,500 excl. VAT per year and is contracted for a minimum of 3 years. Of this amount, 50% is intended for the continuity of the organization and 50% is spent on the organization of substantive activities. See more info at
