Amsterdam Lowlanders Canal Pride. 2011

The ARC Amsterdam Lowlanders took to the water this Saturday, for their first time in the annual Amsterdam Gay canal pride procession. The procession winds its way along some of the main canals through the center of Amsterdam. The boat was filled with around 100 rugbyers and fans, not just from the Netherlands but also other gay teams from across Europe.

Around 400,000 spectators visit Amsterdam for this very unique event, which gave  the Lowlanders some great public exposure, with the message ‘Gay and Straight Play Rugby’.
