For 25 years we have been celebrating freedom in Amsterdam – the freedom to truly be yourself and to love who you want. Pride Amsterdam has become an integral part of the annual calendar and our collective experience in the city. The festival has grown into a world-renowned event spanning several days where the LGBTQIA+ community truly sets the standard in the city. However, this has not always been the case. The road we have traveled to get here with Pride has been a long and hard one. Despite many highs and lows, the emancipation struggle has endured and taken unprecedented steps, with many moving moments to cherish forever.
