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!

As usual, it will not only be an effort but it will also be sooo much fun! Our Swim for Life DJ will be spinning his best tunes throughout the afternoon, while the BGS massage team will take care of sore legs and arms after all of your swimming efforts, and the BGS impro team will keep you hydrated and fed at their “Improvised Bar”.


Activity of the month: discover Qi Gong

Qi Gong 氣功 literally means "mastery of life energy". It has been practiced for thousands of years and focuses on physical health, breathing and calming the mind. Its fundamentals include being rooted, formulating your intent and letting go. Qi Gong movements stimulate energy and blood circulation. They stretch out the meridians, the limbs and the tendons, thereby lubricating all the joints and making them more flexible.

Classes take place at the Centre BYP – Brussels Yoga Pilates Centre in 1000 Brussels, rue du Fossé aux Loups 38 (entrance on rue d’Argent) every Friday (6, 13, 20 and 27 November) from 6.30 to 7.30 pm.

As a reminder, the activity of the month is FREE for BGS members, so long as your yearly subscription is paid up (15 €).
