This weekend was the Gay Pride in Belgium, Brussels. 80.000 gays and supporters from the LGBT community were present. The parade started at ‘De Beurs’ in Brussels with performances and the unfolding of the rainbow flag. Then the real party started with dozens of floats.
The Belgian Pride is a celebration of diversity and equality. With this day Belgium shows that they have already achieved a lot, but that they still have a long way to go. Gay bashing still happens and there are still 72 countries were gay people get killed because of their sexual preference.
The Belgian government has committed to renew the interfederal plan against homophobia, lesbianphobia and transgenderphobia.
