“Today, after two years of absence and for the 25th time, the colorful Canal Parade sails through the Amsterdam canals. We congratulate Pride Amsterdam on this special milestone and wish everyone involved a lot of success and fun with the festivities around the important theme My Gender, My Pride,” the king and queen wrote on social media.

    “We wish everyone with all our hearts the freedom to be who you are and to love who you want!”

    The Canal Parade has been canceled for the past two years due to the corona crisis. On Saturday, the boat parade will again move through the Amsterdam canals. Traditionally, the event attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors.
