Out in the Street



Brussel. Out in the Street! The first gay and transgender lesbo- strip wall in Europe.

The Rainbow House Brussels and the City of Brussels, supported by the Ancienne Belgique music hall and the House Vande Human, tried to provide an answer for the problems of LGBTQI now. A unique project in Europe May 1 at 12AM inaugurated. You probably know the numerous strip walls of Brussels. Now, the capital is also host to the first permanent gigantic wall strip (40 meters long) which proposes a series of LGBTQI portraits.

 With humor and ridicule this project showcases the uncomplicated difficulties facing the LGBTQI community is facing. The visibility of lesbian women, the non-recognition of the rights of LGBTQI in Belgium, but also how it educates, the insults, the violence, and the many stereotypes about this very diverse community.

The first of May is our opportunity to present the artists behind this project, Ralf König, the prominent star of the comic strip in Europe, but also Fotini Tikkou, the Greek artist who performed work for this project based on the theme LGBTQI.

The campaign for the coming out of the Brussels Region.

Should a man a real man? And what is a real man? Should women and men love wearing elegant dresses? And what is elegance? Should we accept only one gender pattern, or let's allow us open to other realities? We have the right to show us as we are, because we are after all not everyone else?

These questions bring the Police Brussels-Ixelles, the employees of the Property Management Agency of the City of Brussels, the Equal Opportunities of the City of Brussels, the municipality of Schaerbeek and Ixelles Commune an original response, which can not be clearer than through their participation in the Campaign All Genders Welcome.
