Do big, specifically gay events such as Gay pride and the Eurogames contribute to the acceptance of homosexuals in the Netherlands or do these in fact lead to segregation ?

On the whole, the Netherlands has embraced the gay community, only a small percentage of the population does not acknowledge it. Gay couples can marry, adopt children and gay characters are no longer absent from TV programmes and respectable suburban neighbourhoods. Is the image presented by the gay community and the media still accurate these days ? In 'THE ONLY GAY IN THE VILLAGE' artists reflect on the current status of homosexuals.
