Egow is a Brussels based non-political social group for lesbian and bisexual women of different nationalities, ages and backgrounds, to come together in a friendly atmosphere to meet and socialise.
We organise all sorts of activities, ranging from laid-back Sunday afternoon brunches, to parties, regular bar nights at the Rainbow House, sport activities, cultural excursions and outdoor adventures.
At the moment we have over 450 members, coming from about 20 different countries and aged from 20 to 50+. Although mostly English is used in the group, we also speak many other languages. What’s more there is no membership fee to join Egow!! We very much look forward to meeting you.
In 2017 Egow branched out and has now a “little sister” in Helsinki, Finland with a growing group of local and international members. For now you can find them in Meetup!
