It’s that time of the year again: Antwerp Pride and Antwerp Queer Arts Festival. Pride focuses on the second weekend of August: from Wednesday 10 to Sunday 14. AQAF runs from 5 to 28 August. In 2022, Antwerp Pride turns 15 and looks 15 years into the future under the banner of ‘Queertopia‘. AQAF hasn’t communicated a specific theme.
There are many partner events during Antwerp Pride. These are not part of the official Antwerp Pride programme, but are obviously thematically linked and are ‘partner events’. One of those is the La La Ladiesland * Open Air Pride Party at Vrijdagmarkt organised by DJ Kat V and La La Ladiesland Festival.
The asterisk (*) can signify two things. In an online conversation, it can signify the correction of a previous spelling or grammatical error. Easily done in an online chat.
The other use for an asterisk is to signify a broad sense of the word. It originates from queries in a search engine such as Google. So in this case, ‘ladies’ should not be understood in its sensu stricto meaning, but in its sensu lato meaning.
Party and line-up
The open-air party starts at 5 PM and end at 11 PM. Expect music, dancing and food by Bistro Bar 2.
