COLOURFUL PRIDE X MS.JONES PRIDE BOAT 2024!

One of our highlights this year is the Colourful Pride x Ms.Jones Pride boat during the 2024 Canal Parade. Here, we celebrate love and diversity and provide visibility and space for the bicultural queer woman. We are proud of our collaboration with Ms. Jones, a Community and Party for lesbian women, particularly bicultural lesbian women.

 

Participating in the boat parade shows the participants that they are allowed to exist, that they are seen, and that they have just as much right to take up space and be their wonderful selves. We hope that our presence encourages the audience to feel recognized and empowered.

 

During the Canal Parade, everyone on board on the Colourful Pride x Ms.Jones Pride Boot may bring their own flag of origin. We encourage everyone to show where they come from, who they are, and to highlight that, although we may differ from the person next to us, together we demonstrate the power of diversity and unity. Especially now, in these polarizing times, we show that our differences should not be barriers to being together but are instead a beautiful addition to our unity. How we will express this year's theme "Together" remains a surprise for now, but one thing is certain: it will be Colourful!

#WATDOEJIJ CLASS TOUR AT THE AMSTERDAMS LYCEUM

In the spirit of Purple Friday 💜, Colourful Pride Netherlands has organized the #WatDoeJij campaign in collaboration with the Municipality of Amsterdam this year. With this campaign, Colourful Pride wants to create awareness among young people online and offline about discrimination against the LGBTIQ+ community.

On Thursday, December 9, Colourful Pride organized the #WatDoeJij workshops at Het Amsterdams Lyceum. During a class tour of 8 - 3rd year classes, workshop supervisors Ewald and Cherinne discussed different scenarios regarding LGBTQ+ acceptance, discrimination and support.

It was a super successful and educational day where we heard great and honest opinions from the students.

❤️🌈Colourful Pride's priority during the workshops was to create a safe environment and we certainly succeeded in that. During the workshops, no fewer than 2 students and 1 teacher had his coming out. ❤️🌈

RAINBOW SAFETY ALLIANCE

Colourful Pride is affiliated with the Regenboog Safety Alliance

In Amsterdam you are free to be who you want to be and to love who you want to love. To be yourself, you need a feeling of security. However, LGBTIQ+ people in Amsterdam face intimidation, violence and discrimination. That is unacceptable and it puts the right to be yourself in freedom in our city under pressure.

 

That is why on June 30, 2021, 26 social groups and organizations*, mayor Femke Halsema, councilor Rutger Groot Wassink and Head of Operations and member of the unit management of the Amsterdam police Pim Jansonius signed a cooperation agreement. Together we form the Rainbow Safety Alliance (RVA) to increase the safety of the rainbow community in Amsterdam.

*The participating organizations and groups are: Alle Kleuren Oost, Beards of Berlin, COC Amsterdam, Colourful Pride, Emancipator, Fairspace, Gaykrant, #ikbenhetzat , LGBT Youth Initiative, Meldpunt Discriminatie (MDRA), OndersteBoven, Pink Marrakech, Pride Amsterdam, Pride & Sports, Queer Currents, Queer Horecaoverleg, Queer is not a Manifesto, Regenboogloket, Roze in Blauw Amsterdam, Roze Links, Sex Matters, Stop Street Harassment, Tijgertje LGBTI Krav Maga, Trans Amsterdam, Trans United Europe, Women & Pride.

TRAINING 'VULNERABILITY AND SELF-LOVE'

On Saturday, October 24, we were able to provide an online zoom training to 7 beautiful young Queer & Trans BIPOC students from Respect2Love (COC Netherlands).

 

In most cases, BIPOC individuals feel that they were not raised to show vulnerability and talk openly about their own feelings. This has a huge impact on the level of self-love that is developed and how difficult issues in life are dealt with.

The aim of the training was to help students become more in touch with and talk about their feelings without them consciously realizing it. The underlying goal of the training is to take a first step towards normalizing discussing one's own feelings and showing vulnerability, with a side step towards indicating boundaries.

TRAINING 'SETTING BOUNDARIES' AT SHRI LAKSMI PRIMARY SCHOOL

On Wednesday, October 21, we were given the opportunity to give a "Setting Boundaries" training at Shri Laksmi primary school. The children from group 8 did great! The purpose of the training is to give the children tools to address each other about behavior that they do not like. By recognizing their own feelings and giving them tools to discuss them, it becomes less scary to set boundaries and recognize them in others.

TOGETHER AGAINST BREAST CANCER

This breast cancer month, Colorful Pride is joining forces with BOB against Breast Cancer NL. (black owned business) to support women (and men) with breast cancer.
To contribute to Breast Cancer Research, Colourful Pride donates €1 from each Colorful Pride Pin sold to the KWF Cancer Control Foundation throughout the month of October. Every year, the lives of more than 17 thousand Dutch women - and those around them - change dramatically due to a breast cancer diagnosis. Due to the treatments that are undergone, but also due to the uncertainty that the disease entails. Breast cancer is a disease with many, often unknown faces that dramatically changes lives. Research remains necessary. Breast cancer is different for every woman. Not only in terms of treatment, but also in terms of consequences. From chronic fatigue, sexual problems, heart complaints to misunderstanding at work and fear of the disease returning. In the Netherlands, 1 in 7 women is diagnosed with breast cancer. That's more than 17,000 women every year. Although the chances of survival are improving, more than 3,000 women still die every year from the consequences of the disease. Men can also be diagnosed with breast cancer.
