Rotterdam Pride, the event that celebrates sexual diversity, will be held September 21-24. This year, Rotterdam Pride wants to emphasize the responsibility we all have as individuals, as a group, and as a society to keep the conversation going, to create a safe climate for ourselves and our fellow human beings, being true to yourself whatever your orientation or gender identity.

The safety theme is expressed in a versatile cultural program, with art, a seminar, film, dance, exhibitions and performances. Even the party-minded people will not get bored. With a new edition of the Tournament Parade, House of Boys, Cocktailfest, BÄR, and more, there is a full weekend ahead.

This year, the Pride Walk starts on Saturday, September 23rd at the Leuvehoofd and ends at the Schouwburgplein, where the Pride Festival will take place. Below you will find more information on some of the events.
