“Add a touch of class with the Glitter and Glamor of the Brothers Grimm.” Robert Anthony and Thom Rijpstra, together the Brothers GRIMM, are a familiar face in the city of Amsterdam and during Amsterdam Pride. Dressed in their unique festive glittering costumes they are often present as event hosts. “Everywhere we show up, we are usually warmly welcomed as guests. It seems so self-evident to be yourself. Yet that is not always the case and sometimes we are also called names and even spat on.”

Pride ambassador since 2017
