Around this time (the end of July) there is always fair in Tilburg, for years already! This fair is the largest in Europe…..
On Monday however, it was always very quiet. Accordingly, some gay men appealed to other gay men and lesbians in the Netherlands to come just on Monday to the fair. That proved so successful that this festival is called Pink Monday and occurred last Monday already for the 20th time – it’s a celebration of acceptance, integration and harmony.
The NS (Dutch Railways) had specially for this occasion inserted a pink train to transport the revelers from the Hague to Tilburg. The festivities started already in the train. In the compartment where we were, there was karaoke. Mad fun!
On this picture one of the employees of the NS. She had organized the karaoke together with her colleague.
