Go to the details & reviews page of COC Amsterdam The COC is the national society for gay, lesbians, bisexuals and transgenders. COC Amsterdam strives for (further) integration of these groups into society. Furthermore they aim to offer a dynamic, cultural, creative and intellectual platform in Amsterdam.
