For the first time, there will be an African Boat at the Amsterdam Canal Pride on 7th August 2010.

The African Gay Youth Foundation is preparing to take center stage in this year’s pride event with a message of Solidarity with the LGBT communities in Africa, raise the visibility of African LGBT individuals in the Netherlands and declare once and for all, that Homosexuality has no boundaries! (Homosexualité sans frontières!) We are here to finally shout out – We are Gay, we are African and we are not going away!

We also want to pay homage to Mr. Nelson Mandela, who had the courage to ensure that South Africa’s post Apartheid constitution included protection of LGBT rights.

I look forward to hearing from you. Let’s make History!!!
