Amsterdam Pride’s Canal Parade is one of the most unique Pride parades in the world.
All on water, 80 boats from the Dutch community take to the water to celebrate Pride.
The theme this year was ‘Heroes’.
This meant superhero costumes, Wonder Woman kissing Catwoman, and many shirtless guys and girls.
Gay Star News was there in the middle of it all, live streaming on Facebook.
