Belgian Pride Brussels 2023

Belgium, Brussels

Belgium had its first ‘gay day’ on March 18, 1978 in Ghent. It was organized by the Rooie Vlinder group, a very activist left-wing feminist group. A year later, on May 5, 1979 in Antwerp, gay men and lesbians were on the street for the ‘International Day of Homosexuality’. The following year, Rooie Vlinder joined the Federatie Werkgroepen Homofilie (FWH) and the Brussels association CCL to organize Brussels’ “National Homosexual and Lesbian Day”.
