After have lived in Amsterdam for a few years, it has become impossible to miss out on the Gay Pride event. A canal parade goes through the city, filled with boats, rainbow colors and flyboard stunts. Perhaps known as the most liberal city in the world, the Dutch tolerance goes beyond sex and drugs and includes religion and homosexuality as well. The Netherlands is in fact the very first country in the world to have legalized same-sex marriage, which happened in 2001. Here is a selection of photos of the last Gay Prides.
