Proud Trash

The Gay Pride in Amsterdam has become just another platform for big companies to promote themselves. It feels less and less about LGBT issues. There is so much advertising that is no longer enjoyable taking photos of the boat parade. I prefer the colourful litter left over on the streets and the canals. I hope the plastic stuff gets recycled at some point. It is also weird to see people on the boats that don’t belong there. There are plenty of people wearing things that looks just like they everyday boring clothes. They don’t dance either. It is getting duller actually. The boat parade is not an inclusive affair and most gay people are excluded. The parade is in need of an artistic director and big advertising banners should be banned.

Here are some of my trash compositions this year:
