17th May 2014 – Pride4Every1
Jeremy Dubart | 9 February 2014

The 19th edition of the Pride4Every1 will take place on May 17th, 2014. Over the years, this event has become a fixed point on the Belgian agenda and in 2013, it brought together 80.000 visitors in Brussels.

The Pride4Every1 forms the apotheosis of the PrideFestival, which will be held from the 1st of May till the 17th of May. Everywhere in the country lesbigaytrans groups will organise debates, animations, theme nights, literary cafés and other cultural activities under the Rainbow sign.

Since the Pride4Every1 coincides this year with the International Day against Homophobia and that this event takes place a week before the elections, we decided upon the following theme: “Vote for Equality”. Despite the many accomplishments of the last years in terms of equality of rights for the lesbigays and transgenders, there is still a lot of work to do. Apart from this, there is still a lot of work that has to be done in order to change mentalities.. The Pride4Every1 defends equality for everyone in all diversity, regardless of skin colour, origin, handicap, sexual orientation and gender identities.

The Parade will start at 2pm in front of the Bourse. While the Parade runs its course through the city, DJ’s will animate the square in front of the Bourse. Like all the other years, the PrideVillage will be erected in the streets around the Bourse.

The Belgian Pride can also announce a ‘scoop’. European elections will be held in 2019, just as they will be held this year. Since Brussels is the European capital, we decided to announce our candidacy, with the Pride4Every1, for the Europride on the 18 of May 2019.
