Amsterdam is painted in vibrant rainbow colors this week! Pride Amsterdam kicked off Saturday night and continues until August 6. This is one of the most fun weeks to be here thanks to all of the celebrations, street parties, outdoor concerts and over-the-top outfits you’re bound to encounter when roaming around the city center.
My favorite part of the week is the Canal Parade. Eighty boats representing a diverse array of LGBTQ-friendly organizations will sail through the city center on Saturday August 5, starting at 1 p.m. If you are in Amsterdam, don’t miss this spectacular celebration of diversity and love. It is guaranteed to put a smile on your face, no matter what your sexual preference!
Pride festivals are happening all over the globe. What about in your neighborhood? I would love to hear more about your city’s Pride celebrations!
