This video is about Gay Pride Amsterdam 2019. The theme of Pride Amsterdam 2019 is ‘Remember the past, create the future’. It was held on 3rd of August in Amsterdam’s canal.
The boat parade starts at Oosterdok (orange marker). The boats will sail through Nieuwe Herengracht to the river Amstel (past the Stopera — combination City Hall and Opera building). They will then pass underneath the iconic Skinny Bridge (get here early if you want a good viewing spot!). Next they will float down the picturesque Prinsengracht. The parade ends at Westerdok (red market).
The Amsterdam gay pride parade includes 80 decorated party boats filled party-minded gays, lesbians and friends. In recently years many Dutch and international companies have had their own floats at the parade, proudly showing off their commitment to diversity. The Amsterdam Police Corps, the City of Amsterdam, and — one year — even the military have entered their own boats. The Ministry of Defense has its own boat. So has the Ministry of Security and Justice. Political parties, Amsterdam’s public transport company GVB, several hospitals, and water authority Waternet also took part in this historical event.
