Girls Heart Brussels

Weekend

For its 6th edition, Girls Heart Brussels teams up long time favourite Pink Screens, the (in)famous LGBTQI film festival. A perfect occasion to explore Brussels through a pink visor and catch some movies while you’re at it.

Girls Heart Brussels proposes a hand-picked programme consisting of must-see movies, the Pink Night great queer Pink Screens afterparty and the cherry on the cake: a guided tour visiting Brussels lesbian & feminist highlights, past and present.

We propose a 360º package deal, including a 2-night stay at the cozy Hotel Bloom! and a welcome drink on Friday night.
