The starring role of the shimmering canal network in Amsterdam's history was the ideal starting point for this year's Amsterdam Gay Pride theme: 'Reflect'. Culminating in the party weekend of 2-4 August, this year's Amsterdam Gay Pride will be bigger than ever. But the event and its significance have grown in more ways than just in terms of its scale.Irene Hemelaar, executive director of ProGay, the association that organises Amsterdam Gay Pride, notes that 'this year's Amsterdam Gay Pride is something of a meditation, albeit it a jubilant one: 2013 is a big year for Amsterdam; it is the year that we celebrate 400 years of the canals that have brought the city such prosperity, and opened it up to the world as a place for people of all backgrounds, ethnicities and walks of life to come together. We will take the opportunity to look back on how far the LGBT community has come during this remarkable period. And we will shine like never before!'
