The Homomonument, situated in the heart of Amsterdam, at the square behind the Westerkerk, stands as a steadfast symbol of gay life in the capital. Anchored firmly in the ground, this granite monument holds deep significance, representing the journey of gay emancipation not only in the Netherlands but also beyond its borders.

Comprising three triangles made of Rosa Porinogranite, the monument forms one large triangle, symbolizing the past, present, and future. It serves as a solemn commemoration of all those who have been persecuted or lost their lives due to their sexual orientation and identity. Yet, it is also a powerful celebration of the freedom to embrace and express one’s true self. Moreover, it stands as a call to remain vigilant in protecting these rights in the present and for generations to come.

Visitors frequent the site regularly, engaging in contemplation or gathering in groups to learn about the monument’s significance. Flowers often adorn the tip of the monument, left by newly married couples or the loved ones of deceased individuals. Significant events such as Remembrance Day and Transgender Day of Remembrance are observed here annually. Additionally, during Liberation Day and the Amsterdam GayPride, the Homomonument becomes a lively space for dancing and a rallying point for demonstrations and protests.

The pink triangle featured on the monument was the symbol used to identify homosexuals in Nazi concentration camps, akin to the yellow Star of David worn by Jews. In the 1970s, this pink triangle transformed into a proud emblem, representing the fight against oppression and exclusion of gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgender individuals.

The monument’s inscription, ‘Naar Vriendschap Zulk Een Mateloos Verlangen,’ is a line from a poem by Jacob Israël de Haan (1881-1924), a Jewish writer who identified as homosexual. This poetic phrase beautifully encapsulates the profound desire for boundless friendship and acceptance.
