The organizers of Pride Amsterdam is satisfied with a successful edition this year. All nine days of the festival were well attended and pleasant, and there were no noteworthy incidents, a spokesperson for the organization said to ANP.

Pride Amsterdam started last week with the Pride Walk demonstration through Amsterdam. Between 10 thousand and 12 thousand people participated this year, compared to 7,500 last year, the spokesperson said. "We think that's because the Netherlands is becoming more intolerant, which automatically creates a counter-sound."

The fact that clothing brand Suitsupply's new ad posters showing two men being affectionate are being vandalized across the Netherlands, shows that LGBT emancipation still has a long way to go, according to LGTB organizations COC and Pride Amsterdam.
