Award-winning photos at Pride Photo 2021

The open-air exhibition Pride Photo, which is on display in several locations across the Netherlands, shows the photos selected for the Pride Photo Awards in 2020 supplemented with photos from the World Press Photo exhibition. The Pride Photo exhibition allows visitors to think about their own prejudices and assumptions and gets them to consider sexual and gender diversity in an approachable and respectful manner.

  • Discover stunning photos from the diverse LGBTQ+-community
  • Experience the personal stories behind the photo
  • Pride Photo is surprising, authentic, and sometimes uncomfortable

Pride Photo exhibition

The Pride Photo exhibition touches on a range of topics in the LGBTQ+ community. It aims to start a dialog about prejudice and the frequently hazardous human rights situation, with which many individuals from the community are faced, nationally as well as internationally. The topics include day-to-day violence against transgender individuals and the loneliness sometimes experienced by seniors in the community.

Pride Photo also shows images from the world of African Drag and the Queer Life in Guatemala. Other important global topics, including Black Lives Matter, LGBTQ+ refugee issues, and Gender Fluidity are also brought to the visitor’s attention at Pride Photo. “Overall, the exhibition offers a varied window into lives and worlds that will be new, surprising and even a little uncomfortable to many people. This is an exhibition that will open many eyes, I’m sure of it,” says Pride Photo director Hein-Jan Keijzer.
Between May and November the Pride Photo exhibition will take place all over the Netherlands. Visit the official website for all current locations and dates, or visit part of the exhibition online.
