This time next week the Prinsengracht will be lined with crowds supporting the boats in the Amsterdam Gay Pride parade.
There are already flags flying on all the bridges across the Prinsengracht, along the route.
The parade is the most visible part of the event, but there are three days of events and meetings. Including the fabulous Drag Queen Olympics.
It’s a lot of fun, and the whole city turns out to support the participants. It’s a fun day out.
