The pandemic is forcing us to party differently this year. However, May will be a colorful month in Brussels to demonstrate our community pride. Here are the great moments that will bring joy to our hearts.
This year again, we will not march through the streets of the capital. Despite this, the Pride team did everything they could to make May a month of celebration as usual. As last year and the current context lends itself to it, the theme of Pride is #WeCare. More than ever, well-being and mental, physical and social health will be at the heart of concerns.
Traditionally, Belgian Pride is organized as close as possible to 17 May, the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. For two to three weeks, activities are organized all over the city and the highlight is the political and festive parade.
This year, Belgian Pride goes online with several streaming session. Every Saturday till the end of the month, you could join virtually three incredible performances by LGBTI+ artists live from HORECA hotspots ! This is called resilience.
“I do not care so much what I am to others as I care what I am to myself.” ―
To put colors in the city and in our hearts, there are flags in the streets, on buildings, some of which are adorned with the symbolic rainbow. The organizing committee also invites you to draw this rainbow on the sidewalks using chalk available on the event’s webshop.
Every year, more than 40 partners in Brussels take part in the action! All types of buildings, cultural centres, shops, government buildings, universities, everyone is putting up rainbow lights and flags in support of the LGBTI+ community!

A healthy mind in a healthy body. For the LGBTI+ community, this is a theme that still requires a lot of effort. In recent decades, the rights of LGBTI+ people have been greatly improved. However, there is still a great need for a more inclusive society and assistance.
