About 200 000 individuals flocked in the streets and canals of Amsterdam to celebrate this year’s Pride.
The parade took place on Sat. 3rd Aug. 2013.
There were different floats numbered from various organisations and clubs who came to mark their presence at this remarkable event.
This took place after a week long of Pride activities in which African activists participated in a special event hosted by Hivos and Human Rights Watch.
Inkanyiso members were there also to present and to document variety.
