jupiter Jupiter, Disguised as Diana, Seducing the Nymph Callisto, Jacob de Wit, 1727The beginning of August is a period of celebration in Amsterdam: with the annual Amsterdam Pride, the Netherlands lives up to its reputation as one of the most liberal countries in the world when it comes to homosexuality. It will surprise no one that this was not always the case in previous centuries.

This tour uses works of art in the Rijksmuseum to portray the history of homosexuality in the Netherlands: from the 16th until the 20th century, from Sodom and Gomorra to the pink triangle.
