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.

I love this place, wild and safe, all kind of men, no attitude at all. It can really gets packed at some point, it could be a bit uncomfortable if you like more space for yourself, but otherwise it's amazing. Highly recommended.

I like this sauna,great staff with a nice conversation,hygiene is good. I had great sex, so no complaining like below !!! because they had no sex at all, that's why suddenly everything is wrong! I come twice a week, like everywhere you have to do it yourself.

Wat raar weer, Ik zit bijna dagelijks in de rookruimte en aan de bar in de Web, geen ene keer jouw naam gehoord, H.C. Het is juist erg gezellig, lekker ouwe nelen met vaste stamgasten zoals Ouwe Herman, zoals hij zichzelf noemt, Jan met de Pet is ook zo'n amicale leuke man, dus volgens mij is er geen enkele behoefte aan gepraat over anderen, men is GELUKKIG druk met zichzelf, net als ik !!! groet, Harrie
