For the very first time, Iran is going to be represented in Amsterdam Canal Pride Parade 2017. This would be the first time that “Iran” is going to be any LGBTI pride parade in Europe.

  1. I don’t think this is “For the very first time” that Iranian LGBTQIs are participating in Amsterdam LGBTQI pride.
    it is indeed a good job that you are doing, but it would be a greater job if you refrain from giving false news to your readers. below is some resource that shows Iranian indeed were actively in LGBTQI pride in Amsterdam in previous years.

  2. Dear Mithra,
    Iranians has been join in many boats such as “COC”, “vluchteningenwerk”, “Hivos”, etc. But I’m afraid none of them were independent participation in AGP. There were never an “Iran Boat” in AGP before. There were no independent “Iran” participation in any European Pride Parades either.
    Thank you for your concerns about the reliabilities of the news.
    Looking forward to hear from you.
