Last week, the city of Amsterdam celebrated queerness all over town, during the very first edition of Queer Amsterdam. It was joyful, activist, fun, serious, needed, and kinda amazing!
Mister B WINGS Talks joined the celebrations and visited multiple events, including the Pride Walk, Black Pride, and Sex Worker Day. We talked to visitors and organizers, did a little dance when the occasion called for it, and we even had time for a calming embroidery class.

WINGS Talks is hanging out in Amsterdam-Noord at the Urban Sports Hangout. Marco (he/him) is reliving his childhood years while rollerskating, and he even makes an attempt to do some bouldering (spoiler: he’s afraid of heights).
