Antwerp Town (Belgium) Lights up with Rainbow Colors

June 11, 2018


All the people of Antwerp woke-up with a pleasant surprise today; the complete town, start from the Central station to Police station, from museums to monoments, all the streets were lighten-up in shining rainbow colours. Even the Red "A-signs" - the emblem of Stad Antwerpen too was replaced by rainbows everywhere!

Are you curious to know, what is the message behind ?

Antwerpenstraalt translates to Antwerp Radiates!. It’s courtesy campaign for LGBTI (stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersexual). Belgium ranks #2 among the whole Europe's LGBTI friendly countries, yet the objective of this campaign is bigger, it is City of Antwerp’s colourful way of saying that “the city belongs to everyone”. 

Rainbow has all the colours, and everyone can choose to see what they want to see. It's about protection against discrimination, human rights and equal rights and opportunities for everyone.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re religious nor agree/disagree with the LGBTIs, the colours look so beautiful. Just try a night walk photography, you might enjoy the cool pictures!. Here are some samples from @Stad_Antwerpen:



Hope you liked the pictures! Thanks to Stads_Antwerpen.
