In 2020 they've organised a Find the Flags Tour which can be walked as an alternative for the Pride Walk for the week leading up August 2nd.
Visitors can walk independently from the Homomonument at the Westerkerk, past all kinds of places in Amsterdam that are important
for the LGBTI+ community. Along the 5-kilometer route, all flags that are used by the pride community will hang out, starting with the
giant 25-meter rainbow flag at the Westertoren.
At all points on the route, a QR code will be provided to explain the importance of the location
and the relevance of the flag. The route, including a map and special pin, will be for sale at Pink point on the Westermarkt in front of the church
next to the Homomonument.
Some of the Online programming includes a look back with participants at previous editions of the PrideWalk and Canal Parade and a talk about
what participation has meant and brought to them. There's special features on the Find The Flags Tour and exhibition of the Flags of Shame on Dam Square.
Flags of Shame is an open-air exhibition consisting of the flags of the 73 countries where homosexuality is a criminal offense.
Throughout the week live programming will be provided by Amsterdam's Pride Committees and Pride Ambassadors with performers from all corners of the
LGBTi+ community. Programs have also been provided by UNHCR, LGBT Asylum Support, the Human Rights College and the collaborating political parties.
The evenings are filled with beautiful LGBTI+ documentaries and films. Pride is of course not complete without a party and that is why they
have included sets with 12 DJs with which you can build your own party at home.
On Sunday 2 August, the last day of Pride Week, they will close Amsterdam Pride in the evening
in a traditional way with a repeat showing of one their best ever closing concerts - the great Human Rights concert of 2016.
It almost seems as if the popularity of David Bowie has grown enormously in recent years. 35 Artists have been inspired by the postmodern
avant-garde artist, his music, his life and his striking personality. This exhibition in the GO Gallery shows 35 stories in the form of
paintings, drawings, objects and photos about one of the important icons of our time. The exhibition can be seen from July 22 to August 29.
The GO Gallery at Marnixsstraat 127 in Amsterdam is open from Wednesday to Saturday from 12:00 to 18:00.
Though Amsterdam has a worldwide reputation for being the gayest city in the world, even here intolerant conservative
views occasionally rear their ugly head, but when they do the Dutch people react.
