Iranian government has long history of violating LGBTI Rights. We (Iranian LGBTIs) have been imprisoned, tortured and in many cases executed. Yet, social acceptance of LGBTI are very low in Iran in compare with other target groups of Iranian government.

While the situation is different in the Netherlands, Amsterdam Canal Pride Parade 2017 invites us to show “This is my pride!”. We (Iranian LGBTI community in the Netherlands) are going to come out of closet and prove that we are not ashamed of ourselves, we are strong and “This is our lives!”



Participation to Amsterdam Canal Pride Parade needs long planing.
Registration for participants take place each year in January and preparation keeps you busy all the way to August.

Zamaneh Media is organising this event together with JoopeA Foundation.
