Conviviality, diversity, inclusion, open-mindedness. These are the core values of the Brussels Gay Sports and the values which mould and define our mission: personal fulfilment and social integration of the LGBTQI community through sport and leisure, all conducted in an atmosphere of mutual respect and harmony.
BGS provides its members with the opportunity to practice sport and other activities in a welcoming and friendly setting, where the pleasure of being together, of sharing and meeting each other takes precedence over the competitive and sometimes exclusive nature of sport. BGS is open to everyone and is able to present a different image of the LGBTQI community in the sporting domain where there is still a need for greater recognition and diversity.
Check out what we offer and come and join us. You are always welcome!
All good things come to an end! After a summer break full of mojitos and barbecues, it’s time to get back to… sports (body, mind and voice)! BGS offers 15 different activities starting again in September.
We are also happy to present 2 new activities: improvisation and Pilates.
Don’t forget to check out our Facebook page BGS and the different Facebook groups of all the activities so you stay updated with what happens at BGS.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the activity instructors being with us until now and of course we want to welcome our new instructors.
This new season is POWERED BY BGS!
