Around 50 staff members and their families from the U.S. Embassy in The Hague and the U.S. Consulate in Amsterdam participated in the Amsterdam Pride Walk on July 28, 2018.
The U.S. Mission in the Netherlands loves joining the people of Amsterdam in celebrating Pride and we reaffirm the United States’ commitment to protecting and defending the human rights of all, including LGBTI persons.
The Pride Walk is part of the Amsterdam Pride 2018 week. Highlight is the Canal Parade on August 4. This year, New York City & Company and Amsterdam Marketing join the Canal Pride. These city marketing organizations convey the identity of their city, with diversity and acceptance as important core values. Both cities have a pioneering role when it comes to equality. New York promotes WorldPride NYC 2019. That will coincide next year with the commemoration of the Stonewall riots, which took place 50 years ago.
