Pride in Amsterdam 2019

Although LHBT is the main note during the Pride in Amsterdam, this is a party for really everyone. It is about acceptance and celebrating freedom. And like any event there is a theme. This year’s theme during the Gay Pride “Remember The Past, Create The Future”.

Remember The Past, Create The Future

This theme is based on the riots of 50 years ago in New York. Of course better known as the Stonewall riots. For the LHBT movement this was a dividing line in history. Because The Stonewall Inn gay bar was harassed by the Metropolitan Police for years. In June 1969, the gay men, lesbians and transvestites decided to fight back. Due to that reason the LHBT movement was a fact and fortunately it turned out to be more than just a movement.

Finally a year later, the first official Pride Parade in the world was held in New York. Have you had your history lesson for today?
