In 1994 he proposed to introduce marriage equality to the dismay of the Dutch LGBT organization COC. The argument often used against Dittrich: ‘the Netherlands will become a legal island in the world’ proved to be wrong.

Dittrich is married to the Dutch / Israeli sculptor Jehoshua Rozenman and is also an activist.
In 1994 Dittrich became a member of parliament representing the social-liberal party D66.
Boris Dittrich rose to become party leader of D66 in 2003 after Thom de Graaf stepped down because of disappointing results in the 2003 general elections.
After 12½ years in Parliament Dittrich decided to work outside national politics.
However, when the Dutch cabinet (including his own D66 ministers) decided to follow the American lead under President Bush, backed by 75% of the Dutch parliament, he decided to take political responsibility and stepped down as leader of D66 on 3 February 2006.
A few months later D66 withdrew its support from the government after 3 years because of a dispute with the Dutch minister Rita Verdonk (Minister of Foreign Affairs and Integration) about the way she handled the issue of the Dutch passport of Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
Dittrich has been one of the most productive Dutch parliamentarians since the founding in 1838.
He is the first member ever to have drafted four different Private Bills that have successfully become law.
Dittrich took the initiative for laws against stalking, for rights of victims to speak during the criminal trial, for abolishing the time limits on prosecution of crimes like murder and manslaughter, and finally he wrote the law to fix book prices in order to protect smaller bookshops, authors and customers.
