The Amsterdam Rainbow Dress is a work of art made from the flags of all countries in the world where homosexuality is illegal.

It’s an iconic dress that calls for openness and inclusiveness, encouraging people to actively contribute to, defend and share (acquired) freedoms.

Measuring over 16 metres / 52 feet in diameter, the dress gives a beautifully monumental, powerful and disconcerting representation of the global status quo on government-sponsored LGBTI-phobia.
