ProGay chairman Frank van Dalen told reporters that his group hosted the event to boost "choices for homosexual men and women" during Christmas week when they often have nothing to do.
Van Dalen told the Associated Press (Dec. 21) that Christians should not take offense to the festival because it is only intended to be a "wink" at heterosexual assumptions. "Christmas is about more than religion; it's also about love and families, not to mention shopping," he said.

Although Frank van Dalen, the head of ProGay, the organization in charge of Amsterdam Pride, admits there is still some work to be done, he credits the city with making notable improvements.


Pink Christmas Has Homophobes Seeing Red - Leatherati

Frank van Dalen, chairman of Pro Gay, which organized the event, said gays were not satisfied with being tolerated, but wanted to be "socially accepted as an indivisible part of society."
He said the Amsterdam city council sponsored the $21,000 USD event, which he hoped would become a regular event, like the annual floating summertime gay pride parade through the city's canals that attracts tens of thousands of visitors. "Our objective is not to be offensive. This is about visibility," he said. Van Dalen pointed to a report last month that said homophobia was an ingrained problem in Amsterdam, despite the city's freewheeling reputation. The study by the University of Amsterdam reported 67 violent attacks against gays in 2007, which police said was about average. Van Dalen said gays were feeling increasingly uncomfortable in public in recent years, and that they perceived Dutch society as more assertive about "classical values."

"This is just our small contribution for the fight for gay marriage in the United States," said Frank van Dalen, president of Progay, organizers of the pride festival in Amsterdam.
