Who are we?
We are a team of volleyball players part of the non-profit organization ‘Brussels Gay Sports’, some of us members for more than ten years, and we participate regularly in the diverse organizations and events of our association.
Brussels Gay Sports (BGS) is the first gay, lesbian and transgender sports club of Belgium and has been in a constant state of growth over the last 24 years.
More than a simple sporting club, it gathers its members and their friends around unifying values of sporting competition and fun, but also tolerance and social dynamism throughout organization of international sporting tournaments and parties, fundraising campaigns in the fight against aids, sport training or cultural activities.
This is why BGS drives a strong image city-wide and beyond with the authorities, traders, gay/lesbian/transgender public, the public at large and of course its own members.
Welcome to Brussels: the capital of Europe, but also an engaging and comfortably sized cosmopolitan city (with one million inhabitants/164 km²). Brussels is a cultural mosaic, advocating co-education in this respect. Its centre is symbolized by ‘la Grand-Place’ (many say it is the most beautiful town square in the world), ‘le Sablon’, ‘le quartier des Marolles’ (the district of antique dealers, where it is nice to stroll on Sundays), ‘la Bourse’ (the stock exchange) and its neighbourhood, ‘la Place Sainte-Catherine’ and ‘les Halles Saint-Géry (the gay district) where design and fashion are well established.
The city of Brussels offers a range of arts that appeal to a plethora of interests. Simply taking a stroll in the district of Ixelles will charm Art Nouveau admirers. The musical instruments museum (www.mim.fgov.be) will not disappoint music lovers and the view of city centre from their roof top terrace is splendid. For those interested in comics, the ‘comic strip capital’ offers a museum for such, located in a magnificent Art Nouveau building in the city center (www.cbbd.be).
If you are the type to take pleasure in satisfying your palate, our capital abounds in places where you can taste our numerous beers and Belgian cheeses, and establishments where the cuisine goes above and beyond mussels and French fries. Are you familiar with le chicory gratin, le Waterzooi, les anguilles au vert, les carbonnades, le stoemp? It is equally difficult to pass up our selection of sweets: speculoos, waffles, chocolate, gazettes, babeluttes, « couques » of all varieties….
From the Zaventem Airport to Brussels
- There is a train between the airport and city centre (gare du midi) for less than 10 €.
- The bus (number 12) travels between the airport and la place du Luxembourg for 3 €.
- There is a taxi queue just outside the airport terminal exit, assuring you a travel towards city centre for +/- 40€, depending on the traffic and your final destination.
Transport in the city
- The STIB network (www.stib.be) will respond to all of your questions regarding routes within Brussels. The metro, buses and trains circulate from 6am until midnight. Night buses operate until 3am Friday’s and Saturday’s
- Taxis: There are a relatively small number of taxis in Brussels. It is often difficult to catch a taxi on the spot, unless you are in front of a train station or a significantly commercial area. A telephone call to a taxi company is more reliable (+ 32 2 268 00 00 or +32 2 349 49 49). All taxis are equipped with a meter.
