Just moved to an other part of town! From former bank to former warehouse in the Nieuwmarkt – Lastage area, an old (and still very genuine) district of Amsterdam.

All is up and running now (almost). So when around, please drop by for a drink in our garden!

Winners of the Pride Photo Award 2012, an annual international photo contest for photos about sexual and gender diversity, just got announced. The over-all winning photo is from Dutch photographer Chris Rijksen, as part of the brave series Gender as a performance.

I was very happy to hear that the I am Gay and Muslim photo documentary received a special mention. And hope this will draw attention to the issues gay Muslim youth encounter.

The award ceremony will take place on the 28th of September in the Old Church, Amsterdam. Opening of the exhibition will be then and there too, so if you happen to be nearby, don’t miss out on the winners.

Pride Photo Award is an initiative of the Amsterdam branch of the COC (Dutch LGBT organization), IHLIA (International Gay and Lesbian Information center and Archive) and the Homomonument Foundation. With support and advice from Foam (Photo museum Amsterdam) and World Press Photo.
