Gay Brussels is all about a spirit of freedom, non-discriminatory legislation and a wide offer of varied activities in terms of nightlife, gastronomy, shopping and culture. Situated in the centre of a virtual rectangle linking Amsterdam, Cologne, Paris and London, Brussels is synonymous with joie de vivre and multiculturalism.
The LGBT scene in Brussels is discreet, varied and welcoming. The capital’s gay centre is situated in the Saint-Jacques district, near the Grand-Place. Well-known addresses that have become real institutions include Chez Maman, Le Fontainas or the Belgica, to cite only a few examples. The whole region is cosmopolitan, open-minded and tolerant, with people who love to party and speak lots of languages.
Moreover, every year, many events are organised in honour of the LGBT community. During the first two weeks in May, the Pride-Festival offers a full, high-quality programme throughout the Region of activities, exhibitions and other events organised around LGBT themes. Festivities close with the famous Parade@Pride in May, which sees more than 100,000 people amble through the streets of Brussels in a spirit of tolerance, extravagance and good humour.
