Gay Pride Parade

The Gay Pride Canalparade in Amsterdam is every year a great event in the city. The whole town is packed with people along the canals to see the boats with costumes and music. 

It feels like carnaval.

It was so crowded I only could make photos with the camera above my head not seeing anything  hoping for the best. I was surprised with the result.

Confetti bombs.



It was hot but the perfect day to celebrate to live in a country where everybody can be his-/herself without ristrictions.

  6. Wow... look at all the people. It must have been terrible in the past to hide their sexual preference. Things have changed for the better.
