Homomonument Reviews & Ratings
I was expecting something more visually attractive, as this small monument is easy to pass by without giving it a moment of thought, one of the most important ends of any monument. The idea of having a monument to let people know how difficult it has been and it sometimes is to enjoy your human rights when your sexual preference or identity is other than the one you are suppossed to have is great, but I think it was poorly executed. Many cities around the world could follow Amsterdam's lead and create their own homomonuments to make locals and tourists aware of the rights earned by the LBGTI community, and the abuses they still have to face.
Go in the day it you really want to make the most of this place. Its made of a dark- ish stone that's difficult to see at night. Nice view though and great to see the LGBTQ+ Community respected so thoughtfully
Lovely place to take a quiet moment and remember.
A great area to stay if your looking for quiet at night
Like the history it commemorates, this quietly elegant and understated monument is easy to overlook. That would be a mistake.
