Commemoration ceremony

LGBTIQ+ people have been marginalized for centuries and are often still a victim to social hate and crimes. Today, we want to take a moment to honour those people who weren’t as fortunate as we are and show them our respect for the path that they freed for us.

This year is the 7th year in a row that we organize this ceremony at the national Monument of Resistance in Esch, with again the opportunity to host a full audience. As a highlight, the artist Edsun will perform in the Amsterdam Rainbow Dress.

About the Amsterdam Rainbow Dress

The Amsterdam Rainbow Dress is a project and piece of art, initiated in 2016 by Mattijs van Bergen, Arnout van Krimpen, Jochem Kaan and Oeri van WoezikIn. The dress features the flags of all countries where homosexuality is punished by law, possibly by death. Whenever a country changes their laws and homosexuality is no longer seen as a threat, the flag of that country will be replaced with a rainbow flag. The ultimate goal is to have one big rainbow dress, meaning that queer people can live without fear throughout the world.
