Canal Parade: Trotse Lesboot (2007-2011)

Gay Pride, Canal Parade The biggest event of the annual gay pride in Amsterdam, is the canal parade. For five years I was assigned by Stichting Ondersteboven to photograph (on) one of the women boats, the 'Trotse Lesboot.'* The organisation of the boat wanted to show lesbians and bisexual women in all their diversity, young, old, black, white, colored, feminine, butchy/tough. *'Trots' means 'proud'. 'Lesbo' means 'lesbian', and 'boot' means 'boat', that makes 'lesboot' :-)
