A fascinating tour given by an art historian along hotspots of Amsterdams Gay and Lesbian history. Extraordinary and captivating stories, told on the spot, expressing how Amsterdam residents and authorities viewed the gay scene. Our visit takes us to various places: the famous cafÈ of the first motor bike dyke, the site of the eighteenth century authors Wolff & Deken, gays on May 4, 1980 beaten away with their wreath on the national WWII commemoration at Dam Square.

Opening in 1987 of the first gay monument in the world, filthiness and lesbian sex, lesbo in the Jordan district, undercover arrest of gay men having sex in the 18th century, medical research into a lesbian clit (1650). The headquarters of Schorer, the largest gay organization in the world (1967). Police arrests and tolerance. Health and AIDS. Current gay organizations and bookstores.

Made to measure tour by a well-spoken, scholarly tour guide. A guided quality tour by scholar-lecturer, art historian Drs. Kees Kaldenbach. As an art historian based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, I can also meet you in Amsterdam for a personalized guided tour of art museums and the historic center. Together we will experience the beauty and history. Enjoy yourself and learn about history while strolling and discussing the country's history, art and culture.

In doing so, we may touch a number of bases - spanning not only fine art and architecture but also the city's history and current social issues. Starting at your hotel I will take you on a wonderful private cultural walking tour of your choice. My guided itinerary offers you accessable informative conversation in English, Dutch, or German (my French and Italian are more limited). You may also arrange this VIP treatment for business contacts or friends. Our cultural tour organisation office will take care of a unique and memorable experience.

Drs. Kees Kaldenbach has been featured in television and radio documentaries, including BBC2 TV, NTV Japan, Danish TV and Radio Netherlands World Service. In July 2004 he was interviewed about Delft artists by Tetsuya Tsuruhara for the leading Japanese newspaper The Yomiuri Shimbun. In 2004 and 2005 he acted in an advisory role to additional BBC teams. Kaldenbach has written extensively on Vermeer and 17th century Delft, on Vincent van Gogh and on other art history topics.
