Hey, we are considering going abroad for a pride event, and are thinking Amsterdam might be hedonistic and fun.
However we are torn between thinking it will be great versus thinking the prices will be astronomical and queues will go on forever.

Has anyone been abroad for pride and perhaps could shed some light?

I imagine Amsterdam pride would be more hassle than it's worth. Berlin pride would be interesting.

Belgrade Prode has been cancelled for the last three years because of the threat of violence. That has been an embarrassment to the Serbian government. This year the government has been determined that it would go ahead (on Sunday, 28 September). The Culture Minister is to march in the parade, and the European Parliament is sending observers.

Today the police went on strike.

I curated an exhibition for Belfast pride and one of the artists, Phil Collins (turner prize nominee) showed a series of photographs of Belgrade pride marchers with their facial injuries after being attacked by neo nazis. It was pretty sad.

Due to take place on Sunday,makes me think that until this is a non issue in those countries,they can't really claim to be mature developed nations with a sophistication much above that of their local pig farmers stock,with apologies to the lovely pigs o course.

Why?

I've never been to Pride anywhere other than Dublin and Galway so I wouldn't know. Amsterdam however is a beautiful, wonderful city in general I found.

Amsterdam is beautiful but I remember complaints that the ticket prices to the pride events being pretty expensive and very packed.

Ah I see. That would be quite annoying.

Amsterdam gets ready to celebrate Gay Pride

Some 350,000 people are expected in Amsterdam over the coming week to celebrate Gay Pride. Brandon Hartley looks back at the event’s history and what you can expect during the week long 2015 edition The annual celebration of gay, lesbian, and transgender culture first took place in Amsterdam in 1996. Since then, it’s become one of the city’s most popular summertime jubilees. In its early days, the annual extravaganza was a bit smaller and a little wilder than it is now. Organisers have made efforts to tone down the amount of nudity in recent years during popular events like the colossal canal parade in order to make the celebration more family-friendly and accessible for a wider audience. Gay Pride was originally launched to help strengthen the city’s gay friendly image while also drawing attention to important issues that impact citizens in the Netherlands and other nations around the world. Today it features an extensive programme of events ranging from parties to film screenings and museum exhibitions. Over 350,000 visitors flood into the city for the celebration every year, making it one of the largest annual Gay Pride events in the world.
