On July 28th the Pride Amsterdam starts with the so called Pride Walk, a demonstrative and activist walk, where thousands of people walked from the Homomonument to the Vondelpark. This is the 'counterpart' of the world-famous boat parade that takes place a week later on August 5th. Most pride events occur annually, and many take place around June to commemorate the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City, a pivotal moment in modern LGBT social movements. The motto of this year is 'Heroes of our Community'.
