Want to experience Amsterdam from a historic and gay perspective? Come and join my Rainbow Stroll around the heart of the traditional old and gay centre of Amsterdam. I’m going to show you my favorite shops, spots, restaurants and—of course—gay bars, from the old and dirty to the fresh and glittery. I’m a storyteller, and I would love to show you my city and tell you personal & historic stories, fun & facts, about historic and LGBTQ Amsterdam. You can ask me anything, and I will take you on a trip down memory lane with some scenes of my personal life that took place in the pink heart of my city. Please feel very welcome—the rainbow is for everyone.
Underneath the rainbow flag, I fell in love with a girl for the very first time. And I never looked back. Now I live with my girl and—of course—cat, Samantha, in this wonderful free city. I’m a storyteller and writer. I've organized gay-pride boats and won LGBT awards. I know my pink city by heart, and would love to show you around and share personal & historic stories, fun & facts about gay Amsterdam.
1) A sparkling present for you to keep♡. 2) A group picture at one of the historical canals of Amsterdam.
As an expert on diversity and Amsterdam's queer stories: we will plunge ourselves into the queer and historic heart of the city around Warmoesstraat and Zeedijk, near Central Station. We will pass important queer/historic spots shops, spots, and different gay bars—including the oldest one, which has a mind-blowing museum-like interior. Most of all, I will tell you the local stories you won't hear again. The true stories from the street.
Bring your queer or straight self, and enjoy. You can join me if you are between the ages of 16 and 100—although no alcohol will be served to minors. The rainbow stroll will take about 1,5 to 2 hours.
