Amsterdam Gay Pride

Gay pride is the biggest local event in Amsterdam. The highlight is the parade, which is on boats through the main canal. It has almost half a million spectators watching from the side. The rest of the weekend is filled with various culture events, massive street parties and many indoor gay parties.

Kingsday Amsterdam

Kingsday is the celebration day for the king of The Netherlands. The day is the successor to the Queensday.

There is an outside free market in the whole centre, with many music and dance stages. In the gay streets always lots of activities and large gay dance parties like Rapido take place on the days surrounding Kingsday.

Club Church

Jaren terug ging ik zo af en toe naar de church, met name de (z)onderbroek vond ik erg feestelijk. Heerlijk vond ik het vertrouwen dat er een breed gedragen beleid was om veilige sex te handhaven. Veilige sex is belangrijk, maar lastiger als je het helemaal alleen moet doen. Als je het samen doet, gaat het prima en is het niet minder lekker dan onveilige sex.

De tijden zijn veranderd, porno met condooms wordt haast niet meer gemaakt en zeker jongeren vinden condooms saai. Club Church gaat met zijn tijd mee en biedt zijn bezoekers meer keuzevrijheid. Waarin sommige feesten heel ver gaan (Meat Market en Hello Pozzums). Keuzevrijheid is fijn, de opties prikkelend, maar ik sta er als bezoeker die geen hiv wil oplopen, weer gewoon alleen voor.

Het komt wel goed, want ik ben sterk genoeg om mij te beschermen, maar het vrolijke ongedwongen overgeven aan het feestelijke, wetend dat iedereen op hetzelfde uit is, namelijk veilige sex: dat mis ik.
