Amsterdam Opens First Gay Theme Park

by | 29th, April 2009

gay-tree A PARK near Amsterdam now has information signs pointing out spots where “officials say gay men are known to have sex”.

No, it’s not a zoo it’s “so no visitors are taken by surprise”. Oooer!

The signs “clearly indicate what is happening in each zone; also those where gay men are known to practice ‘cruising’,” municipal spokeswoman Manon Koffijberg said.

Not to be confused with “roller-blading”.

“If you don’t want to be confronted by a vision of that sort, the signs allow you to avoid specific areas,” said Ms Koffijberg.

The De Oeverlanden park in Slotervaart, southwest of Amsterdam, is known as a place where homosexuals from all over the Netherlands and elsewhere in Europe go in search of sex partners.

Ms Koffijberg said that while having sex in public was against the law, the park has been used for this purpose for so long that it has become “gedoog”, a Dutch word for tolerating unwanted behaviour.

The sexual activities of cruisers, she said, kept mostly to the bushes in the park, and the new signs sought to ensure that they stayed there.

Bush?
