Yesterday Amsterdam hosted the annual World/EuroPride event. A colorful event full of festivities and extrovert parties. Although these celebrations carry a serious message of equality and the (still occurring lack thereof), it’s also just that; a celebration. Every year the amount of negative comments on- and off-line surprise me. Have you ever noticed that when people make statements starting with; “I have nothing against…..” and end with “but,….”, they actually state the exact opposite?
