TODAY: Join the Demonstration in Amsterdam!

COC Nederland

Apr 8, 2013 — COC Netherlands invites you to a big protest against the Russian anti-gay law on Monday April 8. The event will take place at Oosterdok in Amsterdam, right next to the NEMO museum. The location is right in front of Scheepvaartmuseum where Russian president Putin will be having dinner at that moment.

Dress up in one of the colors of the rainbow if you please. The rainbow is the international symbol of lesbians, gays,, bisexuals and transgenders around the globe. But Russia is about to prohibit use of the rainbow as a symbol of LGBT pride if the anti-gay law is passed.

We'll be gathering from 6 PM on, the actual demonstration will start at 7 PM. Oosterdok is just a five minutes walk from Amsterdam Central Station. Part of the stage program will be Russian LGBT's speaking about the situation in their country.
