Let's get this straight—there's no better freedom than the freedom to love whoever you want and that is the spirit celebrated at every Pride festival in the world. Pride Amsterdam is one such celebration of freedom, inclusivity and love, and a wonderful one at that!
I've always wanted to attend a proper Pride parade, where the whole city forgets everything else and drowns in the rainbow colours of freedom. We have parades happening in various Indian cities now, but honestly, it hasn't reached that level yet (but I know in my heart that it'll happen soon). I clearly remember this one picture drenched in rainbow colours and festivity that I had seen on the Instagram page of Pride Amsterdam. It made me want to leave everything and attend the parade. And guess what? I did.
The whole story of how I reached Amsterdam (on a scholarship), just in time for the Pride is a different story altogether. For now, let me tell you all about Pride Amsterdam and my experience!
