History of Pink Point Amsterdam

Pink Point Amsterdam has been the information center for the national and international LGBTI+ community for more than 20 years. "Pink Point of Presence" was founded in 1998 at the time of the Gay Games in Amsterdam to give effect to a motion (April 1997) of the Amsterdam City Council to accommodate the Homomonument on the Westermarkt with an information point and in this way, as a host, offer the many visitors and passers-by a point of contact.

What started as a mobile information point evolved from a fixed location in a (sea)container to the current, award-winning, nine-cornered kiosk designed by Marianne Meinema. Since 2003, Pink Point Amsterdam is open seven days a week and has, among other things, developed information leaflets about the Homomonument in eleven different languages, as well as various publications including "Dancing on the Homomonument", Schorer Books 2003 and "The Bent Guide to Gay & Lesbian Amsterdam, Pink Point 2003/2005/2007. In 2006 Pink Point Amsterdam gave the initiative for a new sign for the Homomonument, which was revealed by the then City Administrator (district Amsterdam Center) Mr. W. Codrington.

The kiosk still plays an important role in the visibility and receptiveness of the LGBTI+ community in Amsterdam, especially for visitors (national and international) and for newcomers in the city. Regularly Pink Point Amsterdam provides disinterested cooperation in events, exhibitions, commemorations and demonstrations around the Homomonument in the heart of Amsterdam.
