21 MAY | Belgian Pride 2022 Brussels programme and schedule 

Saturday 21 May 2022 is pride day in Belgium‘s capital Brussels. It will be time for the Belgian Pride 2022, featuring a parade. The organisation The Belgian Pride is very late with its communication. But nevertheless, there is a programme and a schedule.

This year’s theme is ‘Open‘. 

On Friday the 20th, concert hall Ancienne Belgique (AB) holds an event called ‘Outrageous‘. 

“Our stage will be taken over by LGBTQIA+ icons, who each in their own way fuse their identity with their work and art. The line-up includes Mykki Blanco, Lotic, Authentically Plastic, COBRAH, BRYN, TYGAPAW, Promis3 and more. With a radical musical programme, ‘Outrageous’ proves what the power of art is: generating visibility, involvement, and recognition”, the AB says. 

‘Outrageous’ aims to be a safe(r) space for those who feel or have felt discriminated, underrepresented and misunderstood, both inside and outside the world of LGBTQIA+ activism. A place for community and celebration. A place for pride.

Saturday 

On Saturday, there must be parties, but the official site Pride.be is still not up to date. But there is a schedule for the pride’s core activities.

  • 12AM (aka noon): opening Pride Village at Mont des Arts / Kunstberg
  • 1.45PM: opening speeches and performances.
  • 2.30PM: start of the pride parade from Pride Village.
  • 2.30PM: opening of the Women’s Square.
  • 4.15PM: concert and dj-sets.
  • 12PM (aka midnight): closing of the Village.

The parade will be purely on foot. No cars or trucks. Perhaps a human-powered cycle thing. 

If you’re going: have a happy pride.
