To mark the International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia, the SNCB is dressing up 15 stations, 3 administrative buildings and 6 workshops in the colours of the rainbow. Through this symbolic act, the SNCB wants to underline the importance of inclusion and diversity and show its support in the fight against discrimination based on sexual orientation.

As part of the International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia on 17 May and Brussels Pride on 18 May, the SNCB is spreading a message of diversity, inclusion and solidarity this week. Over the next few days, the colours of the rainbow will be particularly visible thanks to stickers placed on the main entrance doors in :

  • 15 railway stations: Brussels-North, Brussels-Central, Brussels-Midi, Brussels Airport-Zaventem, Brussels-Luxembourg, Ghent-Saint-Pierre, Antwerp-Central, Leuven, Bruges, Hasselt, Namur, Ottignies, Liège-Guillemins, Charleroi-Central and Arlon
  • 3 administrative buildings in Brussels: Atrium, Salik and Delta
  • 6 B-TC workshops: Salzinnes, Cuesmes, Mechelen, Forest, Schaerbeek and Melle

In Brussels-Central, where Brussels Pride will start, we will be installing a large rainbow in the central hall.

Respect makes all the difference: All you need is love

As one of Belgium's largest employers and with 800,000 passengers a day, SNCB wants to reflect the diversity of our society as much as possible. In our company, everyone is welcome and should be able to be themselves. This freedom and respect for everyone is something we must strive for every day, not just this week. The SNCB is a company that makes no distinction, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. With ‘All Different, All PROS’, the SNCB attaches great importance to diversity. Above all, we are building it together, because each of us is unique and that is what makes our company so strong. Everyone has a chance with us, whatever their colour, origin or sexual orientation. Together, we are joining forces to make our corporate culture more inclusive.
