The unique Canal Parade 2018 will be held on August 4th. About 80 lavishly decorated barges aim to get their message on equality across, while many spectators on the banks of the Prinsengracht and Amstel river cheer and celebrate freedom.
This year, Pride Amsterdam will pay particular attention to human rights. Boats of, among others, Amnesty International, Greenpeace and the College of Human Rights were proclaimed this year by the organization as “Pearls of the Parade.” The foundation “More than desired” has received the first Support Card. Theme of Pride this year is ‘Heroes’.
