Amsterdam CanalPride 2022


CanalPride Poster


Now more than ever, with states passing "Don't Say Gay" laws, criminalizing parents for helping their trans children, and attacking the rights and lives of the members of our community--not to mention the destruction of the right to privacy via the Supreme Court's attack on Roe v Wade, which will have implications for our community (potential consequences include the decriminalization of homosexuality and the elimination of marriage equality, both predicated on the right to privacy established in Griswold and Roe)--it is time for us to come together, show our pride and our strength as a community, and stand up for our rights.  We need to get out the vote of every American--gay and straight, cis and trans, black, brown, white and every color of the rainbow in-between.  

That's why DA-Netherlands and the DA Global LGBTQ+ Caucus is inviting you to join us in Amsterdam for CanalPride the weekend of August 5-7.


We have put together an absolutely killer FUN'raiser for the entire weekend !  


We have a BOAT IN THE PARADE !!  

We have Cocktail Receptions !!

 We have Special Guests !!  

We have Special Tours, on foot, bike and boat !!


For a richer and more robust description of what to expect and of all the events, please visit THIS SITE.


And most of all, we have the opportunity to show our support in front of a half-million people gathered along the canals of Amsterdam on this amazing day. Surely some of them are going to be American, and they need to know how important it is to vote. And the world press will be there too.  


This is an important political manifestation for us, but let's face it, it's also going to be a lot of fun.

There are many ways you can help support us, even if you cannot be there.  Take advantage of the Early Bird Special Prices described below.  All donations will support Democrats Abroad's efforts to Get Out The Vote and win the elections in November.

Book your tickets NOW!

This is going to sell out, and It's gonna be awesome !
