Amsterdam Police Gay Pride

People are always tickled to see the police boat representing at the annual Amsterdam gay pride boat parade.




What's unusual about this photo isn't that hundreds of thousands (including every straight family I know) turn out for the gay pride parade in Amsterdam, it's that there's a blue sky.

No city is as beautiful as Amsterdam in the sun with little puffy clouds. It happens at least twenty times a year.

I think it's awesome that in places like Amsterdam nobody cares if your gay or straight, they all just party together!
