A BITE OUT OF OUR PINK WORLD www.pinkinourlives.com
After a great Amsterdam Pride last weekend with amazing parties and a fabulous Canal Pride we are reading for the 8th edition of Antwerp Pride in Belgium. This will start from Thursday the 6th till Sunday the 9th of August with an opening reception at City Hall on Thursday and ends with an official Closing Party at the Big Market.
There are a lot of stuff to do in Antwerp during these days with main events, but also with many partner events like Terrazza, Roof of Love, Sjalots & Friends, Rapido, Hard Night, H.I.M. White Edition, Daddi and Dramaqueen. If you are a bear, a queen, a lesbian or a leather boy, there is something for everybody to enjoy!!!
Antwerp is a place full of good restaurants, clubs and bars and has lots of culture to offer. Also with this Pride you can follow workshops, see special LGBT movies at Queer and Arts Festival, Eurovision Song Contest and special Karaoke Nights.
“Antwerp Pride 2015 welcomes China” is this year’s theme. As a multi-cultural city with a large Chinese community Antwerp focuses on the Land of Smiles and how the LGBT community is doing there. The Chinese group Queer Comrades will also be a guest at the Antwerp Queer Arts Festival this year.
This year is also special app made for Antwerp Pride by Agoria (Federation of technology companies). They want to stimulate creativity and trying to be different. With this app you can find all the activities, but also connect with other participants. You can find the app in Google Play, Appstore and more under the name “Antwerp Pride”.
The big events are off course the Pride Parade on Saturday at 13.00 and the Closing Party at 14.00. More than 15 trucks and forty organizations will participate in the Parade and this year it starts with 30 oldtimers from the Gay Classic Car Club Benelux. This will definitely bring something extra to this Parade. The closing Festival is one of the most cheering events for everybody, young and old, straight or gay with many artists to entertain the crowd. This year Songfestival winners Conchita Wurst and Alexander Rybak return again, dragqueen performances and we will see a preview of the musical “RENT”. The show will be hosted again by Nathalie Delporte and Dimitri Vantomme.
Enjoy a colorful, fun, safe, crazy, fabulous, loving and spectacular Antwerp Pride 2015. This LGBT friendly Metropolis will make you feel welcome and come back for more!!! For more info check out www.antwerppride.eu or www.visitantwerpen.be
