Join us for the exhibition “With Pride” at the OBA, the Amsterdam Public Library.
☛About the exhibition ☚
Using material from the IHLIA LGBT Heritage archive, “With Pride” marks 40 years of turbulent history, struggle – and celebration – of the LGBTI community in the Netherlands, from activism to full citizenship, from ‘gay’ to ‘LGBTI’, from discrimination to legal equality. The information in the exhibition is in Dutch, but this special guided tour will be given in English by Brian, a IHLIA volunteer – and Gay & LesBian Social The Netherlands Meetup member!
☛About IHLIA ☚
