In May 2013 I was invited for a second time to work in Belgium for a couple of weeks at our Vilvoorde office just 7 miles north of the capital city, Brussels. This time though I had a bit of bad luck concerning the weather with it being to a greater extent “wet”. Well beggars can’t be choosers as they say so I tried and to a certain extent succeeded in making the best out of a bad situation.

On the second weekend of my stay I grabbed the chance and ventured with my accompanying colleague and his wife to Brussels for the day. The weather was dull and cool but at least it had stopped raining. After a while though Maciek wasn’t feeling too good and decided to return to the hotel.

I remained in Brussels and couldn’t believe my luck as I saw this parade meandering through the city centre. Belgian Pride as the parade is called offers one day of freedom for everyone, including gays, lesbians, bisexuals, the transgender and intersexual community with their friends to express themselves. The event is in it’s 18th year.

“For me, every photograph is a portrait; the clothes are just a vehicle for what I want to say. You’re photographing a relationship with the person you’re shooting; there’s an exchange, and that’s what that picture is.

― Peter Lindbergh
