Amsterdam Gay Pride - Jean Paul Zapata80 pride boat floats… Hundreds of thousands of people… One fast and furious thunderstorm… Nary a wig hair out of place.

Over 300,000 people did not let a little rain get in the way of celebrating the 19th annual Amsterdam Gay Pride flotilla this weekend, taking to the canals in the early afternoon with families, pride paraphernalia and umbrellas in tow.

The weather forecast predicted thunderstorms in the afternoon, just when the floating parade procession through Amsterdam’s canals was meant to be reaching its high point. But when life gives you rainstorms, Amsterdam Pride doesn’t stop for anything!
