During the Pride is Protest demonstration, the Zero Flags Project will briefly draw attention to the 72 countries where homosexuality is still in the penal code. The Zero Flags Project aims to steadily reduce the number of countries where homosexuality is a criminal offense.
The Zero Flags Project seeks collaboration with organizations such as the Equal Rights Coalition, UNHCR and Human Rights Watch. The project’s activities focus on the flags of the 72 countries. In previous years, the flags were carried in the annual Pride Walk at the front and in 2016 the Amsterdam Rainbow Dress was made from these flags.
