1966. Bet van Beeren in front of café Violetta across the street from her café ‘t Mandje at the Zeedijk in Amsterdam. ‘t Mandje is considered to be the first gay bar in the Netherlands and one of the first in the world. It was opened in 1927 by Bet, herself a lesbian. After her death in 1967 her sister Greet operated the café until 1983. In 2008 the cafe was reopened again by family members.
