PHOTOS: Going Dutch! The canals come alive for Amsterdam Pride

Some 300,000+ people from the Netherlands and around the world lined the gorgeous canals of Amsterdam over the weekend for its annual Pride Parade, the planet’s best known waterborne LGBTQ procession.

No city embraces Pride quite like Amsterdam, where everyone—young and old, gay and straight—gets in on the act, and a great many don pink for the occasion. As the floats make their way down the canals, spectators cheer from the packed streets and bridges (or if they’re lucky, from one of the many small vessels and houseboats lining the waterways).
