Pride Amsterdam remains one of the best celebrations of its kind around the globe and the world-famous Canal Parade is one of its memorable highlights. Each year the parade sees about 80 boats representing everything from small LGBT foundations through to pink networks within multinationals. They all cruise the city's canals celebrating the past, present and future of the LGBT community in lavishly decorated boats and barges.
