Again this year for Pride Amsterdam, a fantastic party will be organized on the Zeedijk! In collaboration with Café Skek, Café Verhoeff, de Barderij, ’t Mandje and Little Thai Prince, Café The Queen’s Head presents a street party on Friday night, August 3, from 6 p.m. onwards, and on Saturday, August 4, from 4 p.m. to late.
Bingo Queen Coby van Dam will be hosting the Pride Celebration on the Zeedijk like no other, and she has invited many of her friends to give Pride performances, such as DJ Bo Monde, Victoria False, Souldelight, DJ Moog, DJ Jakk B, Kimberley Clarck, Vita d’Or, Boo ChaCha and Kosmo3000. Of course there will also be street bars available where you can get a gin & tonic or a Bacardi-cola!
This year’s edition of the Zeedijk street party is extra special, as The Queen’s Head is celebrating its twentieth anniversary. It is a great opportunity to celebrate with even more gusto and to reflect on the fact that we can be ourselves in this beautiful city.
This year, the Pride has another feel to it because of the increasing problems GLBTs seem to be facing on the streets of Amsterdam. Monique de la Fressange, to name one, was recently harassed near Central Station after a performance in The Queen’s Head.
Therefore, we will not only be celebrating our Pride, but we also want to show that, despite everything, we are proud of our tolerant city, of the colorful Zeedijk and the acceptance and equality that so many GLBT advocates have fought for, now and in the past.
Have a loving and safe Pride!
