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.

In your everyday life, are you somewhat reserved or even downright shy? Or are you instead very expressive or a genuine extravert? How would you be on stage?
Have you ever thought of giving improv a try?
What is improv?
It all starts with an unlikely dialogue between two, three or four people, wholly unscripted, based on a single key word or a more detailed scenario: two people on a date, a dispute between spouses, a fantastic tale, an outer space journey…
You become a household pet, a philosophical concept, a serial killer, a movie star, or a man-eating plant…
At first you are unsure, you feel anxious, you wonder what the heck you’re doing on the stage. Then all of sudden, you get an idea, you get into character, you find a clever turn of phrase, the scene comes to life, a whole universe takes shape around you, and you’re off! You spin a fabulous yarn, and the audience is in the palm of your hand!
Improv gives you the chance to let your imagination run wild and to give free rein to your creativity, within the bounds of a few ground rules and more or less detailed instructions.
Improv involves space management, concentration, listening to your fellow players, acting, expressing yourself through speech and movement, learning to let go, teamwork, and more.
Interested? Take the plunge!
Have you ever thought about doing improv, but didn’t know where to look, didn’t dare try or just put it off until later?
