Message Pride Amsterdam
Everyone has the right to be who you are and to love who you want. The Amsterdam Gay Pride Foundation wants to continue paying attention to human rights in general and the acceptance and equality of LGBTI people in particular, anywhere in the world. Pride is a great party and at the same time an impressive plea for the emancipation of LGBTIs. Every year hundreds of thousands of visitors come to the capital of the Netherlands to attend the nine-day festival. Pride Amsterdam offers – with its partners – a range of events in the field of debate, art, theater, film, (dance) parties and sports. The highlight is the famous Canal Parade, where content and entertainment come together to create a lively spectacle. More information and program at .

General Press accreditations
The media are welcome at our festival. But all media need a general press accreditation if you want to be present at activities, meetings, parties, canal parade etc as a journalist.
It is important that you can identify yourself as a journalist at these activities like Pride Walk, Pride Park, Pride at the Beach etc. The accreditation is for example also especially important to gain access to the press center of Pride Amsterdam and other press-facilities during the canal parade.
Press accreditations during Canal Parade August 4th
During the boat parade, journalists can access the press section at the Prinsengracht with their press accreditation (Pride Press card). You will not be admitted without press accreditation. From this place, you have a free view of the parade and you can follow everything carefully. Journalists who do not want access to the press section can do their work anywhere in the city, along the route of the parade and between the public. Important: you still need a general press accreditation (see explanation above).
Photographers who work for their own websites/ social media, can also obtain accreditation for a press section at the Prinsengracht. In exchange for access to these press section, the Amsterdam Gay Pride Foundation (AGP) receives 10 photos of your choice. Duty-free (with attribution) may be used for promotional purposes by AGP. If you do not want access to the press section, no problem. Photographers can do their work anywhere in the city, along the route, between the public, but you still need a general press accreditation (see explanation above).
For production costs (€ 750,- excl. VAT), we arrange a press boat only for camera teams (inter) national broadcasters and tv-stations. It is not allowed to use your own boat during the canal parade.
