On May 4th we remember the fallen and our freedom. Due to corona rules, the commemoration has a different character this year, but we don't want to let this day pass unnoticed. The subject is too important for that.

Especially for #LGBTIQ+ people, the commemoration has an extra charge and meaning, which continues to the present day and is very relevant in an international context.

We have found a number of speakers willing to say something about this:

  • Adriana van Dooijeweert (chairman of the Netherlands Institute for Human Rights);
  • Sandro Kortekaas (chairman LGTB Asylum Support);
  • Ricardo Lemmer (chairman Black Queer Holland);
  • Bert van Alphen (alderman for the emancipation of the Municipality of The Hague) reads a poem.

The online commemoration can be followed on Tuesday 4 May from approximately 19:30 via the YouTube channel of International Gay Monument: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2g8rU-xV5wzJyVtwegwKfw
The emphatic request is to stay at home this year and not to gather at the monument for the 2 minutes of silence. This is due to the corona rules. We ask for everyone's understanding for this.
