    What to Expect
    We start at 3 pm at the homo monument, where Henk will explain how the Netherlands came about to be the first country in the world with a homo monument and gay marriage in 2001. Did you know there was a gay resistance fighter in WOII.? We will walk through the historical centre of Amsterdam, passing the Palace on Dam square, the Old church and end at the oldest gay bar in Amsterdam and probably Europe since 1927 't Mandje. We end around 5 pm on the Zeedijk where you can take a drink in the bar. Much recommended. The tour is in total 2 hours, and we go along the canals and the old down town. Henk will bring up other topics as well that might interest you.

    Henk was a great guide, not only does he know local and global gay history inside and out, his passion for the subject is infectious. He gave insightful context to the people and events. Highly recommended.
