The Curacao Pride is officially opened!
WILLEMSTAD - Last Wednesday, the third Curacao Pride was officially opened by Her Excellency Lucita Moenir Alam, former Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in the East Caribbean area. She ceremonially handed over the key to the Pride Village to Frank Holtslag, president of Curacao Gay Pro, the organization that organized the Curacao Pride.
During the opening FOKO (Fundashon Orguyo Korsou) awarded an award to Rodeshka Martina, who as a 17-year-old came out publicly on her school.
