Today, 23 May, the Belgian Pride parade should have been held in Brussels. For obvious viral reasons that was impossible.
A week ago, for the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT or IDAHOBIT), Antwerp Pride chairman Bart Abeel spoke at a rainbow flag raising event.
In one online he explained the essence of resilience. “Cancelling Pride is like cancelling Christmas. You can’t do that. Pride will be different. We’ll use all our creativity.”
