Amsterdam Gay Pride 2013


Amsterdam Gay Pride has much more to offer than just the Canal Pride parade:

- Street Parties

The evening of Friday 2 August is when Amsterdam's LGBTs and friends hit the atmospheric cobbled streets for open-air celebrations and wild dancing. Choose your scene, from the hip, young vibe of the Reguliersdwarsstraat to the Dutch carnival atmosphere near the Amstel river.

- Grey Pride

A series of events, from debates to cabaret, geared towards a mature crowd.

- Drag Queen Olympics

Friday August 2: Featuring gruelling disciplines like the Handbag Toss and the High Heel Sprint, this bedazzling sporting contest on the Homomonument is something of an Amsterdam Gay Pride institution.

Amsterdam is the perfect place for a gay-flavoured long or short break, with a host of friendly and characterful gay neighbourhoods to explore…

Gaybourhood #1: Homomonument

Karin Daan's three-sectioned pink triangle - symbolising past, present and future - was a world first. It's also a place to celebrate and be proud: for Amsterdam Gay Pride, it gets annexed as an open-air disco, and the site of the world-famous Drag Queen Olympics. The Pink Point hut offers year-round information and souvenirs, and the nearby Anne Frank House offers another opportunity to reflect on the meaning of freedom.

Gaybourhood #2: Warmoesstraat/Zeedijk

The long and narrow Warmoesstraat is the oldest street in town, and it's home to leather bars, sex shops and Getto, a friendly café where the burgers are named after drag queens. Among the Asian eateries of nearby Zeedijk, you'll find Café 't Mandje, Amsterdam's - perhaps the world's - oldest gay and lesbian bar. Nearby, The Queen's Head pub is known for its colourful and cosy bingo nights.

Gaybourhood #3: Reguliersdwarsstraat
