      EVENT DETAILS
      LGBT GAY History Tour. Amsterdam as gay capital by local guide Henk

      We'll start at Homomonument—the first monument in the world dedicated to the gay and lesbian victims of the Holocaust. We'll walk through historic Amsterdam and enjoy the scenery while I tell you about the gay history of the city. We'll see the canals, the palace on Dam Square, and the Red Light District.  Henk will enlighten you about being gay in the 17th Century and about prosecution during the centuries and how gay men and women found ways to live their lives. He takes you back to 1970 when social revolution and a gay writer paved the way for a thriving gay life in Amsterdam as Gay Capital. We'll end the tour at Café 't Mandje, a gay bar that opened in 1927.
