On Thursday, August the 4th, 2016, we proudly present SeniorPride on the canal in front of Paleis van de Weemoed (Palace of Nostalgia). A musical revue as a tribute to our LGBT seniors. There will be a variety of artists and acts. SeniorPride has been made possible by Amsterdam Gay Pride. We like to thank our sponsors without whom it would be impossible to organise this festival.
Since 2004 we organise events for elderly and through the years more and more people joined us, which improved the quality and brought it to a higher level. Our motivation is to thank and to honour our predecessors who fought for our rights and freedom. They laid the foundation on which we can continue to build.
SeniorPride is a community. A concerned community, but also a productive community. This edition during EuroPride 2016 is broadly supported by volunteers whom we can't thank enough.

This year the award goes to two people, a man and a woman who have made efforts for:
We are especially looking for candidates who have been working at the background, often for decades, to put them in the spotlight for their achievements.

Please send your nomination before the 30th of June, with a short description of your nominee's work and the reason for your nomination, including a picture of your nominee, to the chairwoman of the commission: email@example.com.
