PROUD TO BE, THIS IS ME!

SMAC is a gay friends group that originated in café Queers. To prevent lonely evenings, friends and friends of friends were brought together for various activities. A close-knit group emerged and for the past five years everyone has been meeting monthly for an unforced activity. The activities vary from bowling and bumper football to an annual weekend in the Ardennes.

The missing activity is, of course, having your own boat during the canal parade.

After two years of waiting and hoping, the time has finally come for the men of SMAC to join us. Because the group consists of a very diverse group of people, and everyone respects each other, we are “Proud to be, this is me!”

You must always be able to be yourself. You have to be able to love who you want, be who you feel like and have respect for others. To show the diversity of our group and community, we have chosen to give some members a prominent role on the boat as eccentric circus artists. The film “The Greatest Showman” was used as an inspiration and from this also comes our soundtrack, which completely fits our theme “This is me”.

The styling of the boat will be in the style of the film. Expect a lot of red and gold, fringe and circus spheres. Old school circus and recognisable characters from the film, representing all colours of the rainbow.
