Tomorrow afternoon (Saturday May 17) there will be a 'kiss-in' at the Homo Monument near the Westerkerk church.
The event is organized in the framework of the International Day Against Homophobia. Although a similar kiss-in was organized 3 years ago on Leidseplein, the situation for gays and lesbians has apparently not improved. The organization wants to make a statement against intolerance, and for the freedom to walk hand in hand, and live and love in freedom.
