There’s no better way to celebrate Pride Month than by supporting queer people. That’s why we partnered up with Eastpak to design two limited-edition belt bags and raise money for Le Refuge. Get yours at AB while you still can!
We’re proud to finally present our two exclusive belt bags (€19), each beautifully embroidered with the slogans ‘Protect the protest’ or ‘Protect Trans Lives’ in support of our local queer community. The bags were designed to be sold exclusively at AB during Pride Month, and all proceeds will go directly to Le Refuge, a non-profit organisation that provides emergency shelter and other support to young queers in Brussels. The organisation even decided to open a centre specifically dedicated to welcoming and supporting LGBTQI+ asylum seekers. Le Refuge’s team, partners, and volunteers deeply care for the most marginalised and often overlooked groups in society.
You might recognise the face of our campaign, Shaïne Mahaux, a proud trans woman and part of the Brussels-based collective Psst Mlle, an intersectional feminist platform that aims to deconstruct the dance floor, and stands up for representation and inclusion. Psst Mlle co-curated the lineup for OUTRAGEOUS, our not-to-be-missed celebration of all things queer on May 19th, with great music by PRINCE X, Countess Malaise, Grove, Raql, Saliah, Slim Soledad, Tongue in the Mind, and so much more.
If you want to get your hands on one of our limited-edition belt bags while supporting a good cause, come and get yours at AB until the end of May. You know where to find us! Our doors are open from Mon-Fri from 10h-18h and during all of our events, including OUTRAGEOUS.
