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 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.

This place is pretty cool. Staff are friendly and helpful (except for one guy) and they charge no admission. There was a good crowd there last weekend, even some young guys (although, to be honest, there was nothing going on in the cruising basement).

Is het waar dat de gay-cinema Adonis aan de Warmoesstraat is gestopt? Wat komt er nu weer in dit gebouw? Ik last iets van ITS'S of zo. Is dat dan ook een gay-cinema?
Wilt u mij hierover informeren a.u.b.?

This pub deserves to be more popular. The décor is charming (there’s a pool table as well as erotic art!), the bartenders are cute and courteous, and sometimes they have interesting non-porn stuff playing on the TV screens. I like to go there for a beer before hitting Church.
I am in my 40s, but most of the regulars seem to be in their 50s-70s. IMHO, the place would be even nicer if more men in their 30s and 40s showed up. Still, it’s a good place for a quick one. (A drink, I mean.)
