One of Gay Pride parties cancelled

The party in the Halvemaanssteeg, to be held this weekend during Gay Pride, has been cancelled due to security concerns.

Halvemaanssteeg is a small street, just off Rembrandtplein square. In an emergency situation the exit to Rembrandtplein was supposed to be an emergency exit, but if the square is full of people this would not work.

The organization decided to cancel the entire party in Halvemaanssteeg. See also the website for more information. At the moment of writing, the cancellation is not mentioned on the website.
