IDAHOT Walk (Mr. Gay Belgium)

Location: Steenplein, Antwerpen
Date: 16 May 2024, 20:00
On Thursday, May 16th at 8:30 PM, we invite everyone to gather @ Steenplein Antwerp, to participate in the IDAHOT 🌈 Walk, an event organized by the Mr Gay Belgium organization. In celebration of the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, and Transphobia (IDAHOT), we aim to send a powerful message for diversity and inclusion together.

Route and Program
The walk will commence at the historic Steenplein, a place symbolic of Antwerp’s rich history. From there, we will proceed through the picturesque Grote Markt, across the Groenplaats, and conclude our journey at the majestic Operaplein. Throughout the walk, we will carry a 25-meter-long rainbow flag, a potent symbol of our message of unity and acceptance.

Upon arrival at Operaplein (around 9:30 PM), the rainbow flag 🏳️‍🌈 will be ceremoniously laid down, in the presence of Mayor Bart De Wever.

Purpose and Impact
Recent statistics concerning the LGBTQI+ community in Belgium (Half of Belgian LGBTQ+’ers avoid holding hands with partner, 1 in 7 has been physically attacked in recent years) indicate ongoing discrimination and misunderstanding. The IDAHOT 🌈 Walk provides a unique opportunity to highlight these issues and strengthen solidarity within our community. By walking together, we demonstrate that everyone should be able to feel safe and accepted.

Come and join us to send a powerful message against discrimination and for inclusion. 🏳️‍🌈 Together, we make a difference! 🙏🏻
