Child surrounded by kink wins ‘most aesthetic Pride photo’

A photo showing a little girl playing while a group of latex-clad men interact behind her has won a top prize at a Pride competition in Amsterdam.

Amsterdam media AT5 reports the photo, titled, “Imagine What Will Hopefully Stay Taken for granted,” taken by Jan van Breda, won “Most aesthetic photo” out of more than 13,000 entries.

The photo shows a little girl smiling at someone off-camera as she plays by a swing on a front porch patio. All the while, nine men behind her outfitted in latex kink-wear appear to be getting ready for a pride parade, with one of the men eerily smiling at the camera.

According to Pride Amsterdam, the contest called for “the most iconic, meaningful and aesthetic photos.”

The three top prize winners each received 2,500 euros.

Of the photo, the judges reportedly wrote, “This photo, in its composition – child in the foreground, men preparing for Canal Parade in the background, everyone busy with their own activities and fascinations – sublimely depicts what will hopefully remain self-evident: that we, unhampered by prejudices, and almost unsuspectingly, all may and can exist side by side.”

The photo was immediately criticized for its transparent effort to sexualize innocent children, a common theme in the modern-day Pride community.

Back in June, a writer for the Washington Post advocated children being exposed to “kink” and degenerate sex acts at Pride parades.

The agenda to go after children was best laid bare last month when the San Francisco Gay Choir admitted in a song that they wanted to “convert your children” and “corrupt your kids if our agenda goes unchecked.”

“Your children will work to convert all their sisters and brothers. Then, soon, we’re almost certain, you’re kids will start convertin’ you! The gay agenda is coming home. The gay agenda is here!” the gay choir creepily sang.

In a bizarre twist, a Twitter user claiming to be the mother of the girl in the photo claimed it was perfectly normal for the men to change clothes in her garden.

“The men came to change clothes in our garden for years. That was a feast for us, the neighborhood and the children,” reads a Twitter translation from Dutch to English. “No pedophiles. Homophobia is learned.”
