Nothing on TV?

Why not watch a movie with some depth?

Proud Antwerp

After four successful days of shockingly pink fairs, bedraggled bus-tours, slightly damp outdoor festivities, a diverse range of parties & many more events, Antwerp Pride was officially concluded on the Grand Market with a Closing Festival. Those pesky weather-gods must have felt badly about their behavior & at least this event was blessed with some genuine summer weather.
 
During the festival a whistling-concert was held to protest homophobic violence, in consequence of a vicious attack on a young gay man in Brussels earlier in the week, followed by other incidents in Antwerp. (We ourselves spent the Pride days with a broken window after having been vandalized during the night… for the eighth time, and only 3 weeks after our large display window had been thrown in.)
