The internationally known boat float festival in Amsterdam took off with a very festive opening once more. Taking off from the Westerdok through Prinsengracht to the Amstel, the boats were floating in one by one non stop. During the Amsterdam Gay Pride this week there were more then 300 activities being organised in the city, this means the event is bigger then ever. There are still countless activities going on for young people, seniors, transvestites, transgenders, the deaf, gay-parents and their children today. Below you can check out some of the snapshots I was able to catch during my stroll down Prinsengracht where the official "Gay Cruise" took place.
