It’s that time of the year again when rainbow colours are all over Amsterdam: The Gay Pride 2013 was in town! A most anticipated event, the Gay Pride Parade, took place on Saturday, 3 August, on the Prinsengracht canal. Although very fun and cheerful, I found it to be less spectacular than the parade from two years ago, but it was a success nonetheless. As notable boats for this year are the ones displaying slogans against the new Russian laws regarding homosexuality and a boat organised (for the first time) by the Netherlands’ soccer association.

Here are some photos for your enjoyment:


  1. I love the Pride Parade, it’s one of my favorite bits of summertime in Amsterdam! Did you see the guys on the water jet packs? Haha that was too cool!

    • I know, it’s great! I didn’t see those guys, I arrived a bit late this time and missed almost half of the parade 🙁
