Favorite thing: Please note that the Homomonument is _in front_ of me; the Homomonument _is not_ me.
The memorial - a three-sectioned pink triangle - is located on the west side of the Prinsengracht at the Westermarkt. It's said to be the oldest memorial to gay and lesbian people in the world - unveiled in 1987.
