20th May 2017: a pride for the rights of migrants, refugees and asylum-seekers

During the Belgian Pride 2017 the focus will be on the topic "Crossing Borders". The LGBT+ refugees, migrants and asylum seekers are extremely vulnerable and the Belgian Pride has decided to contribute to the pressure to the Belgian authorities for ensuring their rights are protected as they should.

As participants of the Pride we have signed the Charter of the Pride and the annex with the demands for a fairer and efficient treatment of this human beings which come to our country looking for a better life. You can find the text we signed here and in case you would like to sign it yourself, go here.

We wish you all to have a great Pride celebration, and don't remember what we are all fighting for: a better society for everyone!
