July 27th, Amsterdam. Because of the Stonewall 50 anniversary, the Pride Walk theme this year is ‘Remember the past, create the future’. The Pride Walk is a demonstrative and activist walk 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. Thousands of people walked carrying the flags of the countries where homosexuality is in the Penal Code.
