More stripes, more bubbles, more Pride, and more muscles.

Members of the Dutch Aids Fonds sail silently ahead of the Amsterdam Canal Parade commemorating two of their members, Pim de Kuijer and Martine de Schutter, who perished onboard Flight MH17 when it crashed, during Amsterdam Gay Pride on August 2, 2014 in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

The Pride Patrol members wear protective shrugs to avoid over exposure of their cannonball shoulders.
