Very cool. When they are out and accept themselves maybe they'll have the freedom within focus on other things.
Source NIS News BulletinAMSTERDAM, 19/01/07 - Children will participate this summer in the Gay Pride festival. They will have a boat for themselves during the piquant parade through the capital's canals.
As in a carnival parade, groups of men annually go through the canals in countless boats, often scantily clad. With the support of gay rights organisation COC, a 14 year old boy, Danny Hoekzema, has now taken the initiative to have a boat with homosexual children participate on 4 August.
The boy put a call to peers to accompany him on his website. The minimum age for homosexuals that want to join him on the boat is 11 years. "From this age, there is already demand among young homos to have contacts with their peers of the same proclivity," according to COC.
The 14 year old boy has arranged a boat with the help of the COC that can carry 30 gay children. "Recent research shows that homos may come out at a younger and younger age, but only find little connections via the regular bodies," according to COC. "It is difficult for boys under 16 to meet their peers."
