Jos Brink (June 19, 1942, in Heiloo, North Holland – August 17, 2007, in Amsterdam) was a Dutch actor, radio and musical performer, producer, author, columnist, and television and radio personality. He did much to promote acceptance of homosexuality in Dutch society. He was well known as an out gay person. He started living with his artistic partner Frank Sanders in 1973. In a 1979 TV show Thank You, Your Majesty he kissed Queen Juliana (1909–2004) while congratulating her on the occasion of Juliana's 70th birthday. She laughed and applauded, her family and the posh audience in The Hague followed. Brink died of colorectal cancer on August 17, 2007, following a July 2007 diagnosis.
