The sun is finally shinging and Pride season is right around the corner - and if you're looking to head further afield in your LGBT celebrations this year, then you don't have to to wait until Belgium's main Pride event at Palais Paleis.
Brussels Pride takes place next month with a whole weekend of celebrations from 17-20 May, with the Pride march set to take place through the heart of the city on Saturday 19 May.
Of course, there's plenty of after-dark fun to be had over the course of the weekend, and the annual Pride Party Weekend boast three nights of fun in the Belgian capital with thousands of revellers from all over the world.
It all kicks off with an opening night party at Fuse Club on Friday 18 May, with three floors of music and live DJs from 10pm.
The main event comes on Saturday night, when around 8000 men from across the globe gather for a night of debauchery at Palais Paleis, where 65 dancers and acrobats and 15 DJs keep the party going from 9pm right through until 8am the next day.

The weekend comes to an end with a closing party on Sunday night (May 20) at Fuse - if you're still standing, that is.
