More about the Amsterdam Rainbow Dress:
The Amsterdam Rainbow Dress is a living work of art, made of all the national flags from countries where homosexuality is illegal, on penalty of imprisonment, torture or capital punishment – her powerful message represents the disconcerting status quo of anti-LGBTI
legislation worldwide. The iconic dress calls for inclusiveness and encourages to actively defend and share acquired freedoms.
When a country abolishes their anti-LGBTI legislation, the respective flag shall be replaced with a rainbow flag. Over time, the Amsterdam Rainbow Dress shall gradually transform into an enormous rainbow. The work of art measures over 52 feet / 16 meter in diameter
and currently consists of 75 national flags, one rainbow flag (in place of Belize) and a bodice constructed from the Amsterdam city flag. This underlines the need for the city of Amsterdam and the Kingdom of the Netherlands, with her free-spirited and progressive nature,
to remain open, aware and receptive towards LGBTI-refugees too.
