About Belgian Gay Pride

This year is the 24th edition of Belgian Gay Pride, and it's a whole two-week event! Belgian Pride kicks off the celebrations in Brussels offering a range of activities and parties. These continue right up until the final weekend of the 17th-19th May.

The theme of this year's pride is yet to be determined, but the event always encourages people to be and show themselves in the street, holding hands with the people they love. 

Program of Belgian Gay Pride

The highlight of Belgian Pride is the vibrant Pride Parade which will take place on Saturday, May 18, and will weave its colourful way through the cobbled streets of downtown Brussels. The parade kicks off from the Pride Stage in Pride Village (Mont des Arts) at 12pm.  

Along with the main parade, Belgian Pride will offer two festive open spaces: Rainbow Village and Pride Village. Rainbow Village runs for the entire weekend (May 17, 18, 19) and will offer roughly ten different open bars, along with an impressive line-up of DJs, circus acts, and drag shows. You can catch all the action on Rue des Pierres, which is located in Brussels' gay quarter, just behind the Grand Place.   

Pride Village just runs on the Saturday (May 18) from 12pm, where Mont des Arts will host a range of association stands, music events, and a stack of food options.  

However you choose to celebrate Pride in the Belgian capital, we guarantee you'll have a festive time! 

Stay gay in...
