Alderperson Rik Thijs was also in attendance. “I am out and proud”, he said. Ït is important for me as an alderprson to show that positions such as mine are also held by people from the LHBTIQ-community. It makes me proud as an alderperson to be raising the flag together”.

In the city there is much support for this day. “It is good that our municipality underlines that we can be who we are”, a young woman said. Ï am bisexual, and coming out was easy for me. But it is not an easy step for everyone”.
