Pride Talk 2024

Every year, with Queer & Pride Amsterdam, the LGBTQIA+ community celebrates its achievements and reflects on the emancipatory struggle that remains to be fought. Every year, on the eve of these days of celebration and remembrance, De Nieuwe Kerk gives the stage to an international activist and amplifies their message.

This year our speaker is Mpho Tutu van Furth, human rights activist, author and Episcopalian/Anglican priest. She will speak about her life and journey as a queer religious leader. She will address current Christian and religious views on the LGBTQIA+ community.
