AMSTERDAM, Netherlands – A Dutch gay group said Monday it has planned a “Pink Christmas” festival for the first time in Amsterdam, featuring a manger stall with two Josephs and two Marys.
Other attractions in the 10-day festival include parties, an open-air market, gay-themed films, an ice skating rink and religious services on Dec. 25.
ProGay group chairman Frank van Dalen said Monday the event is intended to increase the choices for homosexual men and women during the Christmas holiday week.
“Right now, there’s not much to do,” he said.
What can’t you do as a homosexual that you can do as a hetersexual during Christmas? Am I missing something here?
