A fascinating tour given by an art historian along hotspots of Amsterdam's 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 cafe of the first motorbike dyke, the site of the eighteenth-century authors Wolff and 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.
