Pride 2023 at the W Amsterdam | Pride Boat & ‘Take A Stance’-panel

On the occasion of Amsterdam’s Pride celebrations, W Amsterdam will reintroduce the Award-Winning Pride Boat. This beautifully decorated boat, designed by renowned artist Hamish Powel, boats its floral displays made with lavender, a historically important colour in LGBTQIA+ culture that symbolises resistance, power and human expression.

In addition to the Pride Boat, W Hotels in Amsterdam and London has curated a series of engaging programmes and events that highlight the diverse experiences and voices within the LGBTQIA+ community. The “Take A Stance” panel, hosted by renowned activist Peter Van Vlught, provides a platform for sharing views and proposing solutions for inclusion. Guests can also enjoy dance events organized by Outhaus London and Sweetie Darling, offering euphoric spaces for LGBTQIA+ individuals and allies to express themselves freely and celebrate their originality. Dance classes, makeup workshops, yoga, fitness, and meditation sessions are just some of the activities available, promoting self-expression, confidence, and well-being.

W Amsterdam is proud to partner with Calvin Klein and Tanqueray, embracing inclusivity and unity throughout the full Pride 2023 Week.
