Rotterdam Pride week

Gay pride is about the self-affirmation, emancipation, equality, and increased visibility of the LGBTQIA+ community. In the USA in the sixties, it was common for police to raid gay bars. By the end of the sixties, the LGBTQIA+ community fought back against police at the Stonewall Inn in New York. These Stonewall riots were seen as the first organized fight for equal rights for LGBTQIA+ people. Since then, as a reaction to these riots, pride events have happened all across the world.  

This year, Rotterdam Pride week takes place from 17 until 26 June, with Pink Saturday as an important highlight.
