The Pride Amsterdam traditionally began with the Pride Walk, a peaceful demonstration for equal rights for gays, bisexuals and transgender people. There’s also plenty to do in and around the capital in the coming week. It is well known that in Holland you can “be what you are, and you can love who you want”.
