Luk Alloo on an unexpected visit in gay club: Only I was allowed my clothes to hold
TV Reportagemaker Luk Alloo (55) starts tonight on the third season of 'Alloo in the night'. And he does that with a visit to a gay bar. "Years ago, ashamed that men are so on tv, now they talk openly about: respect."

Where is burning in the middle of the night light? And what are these people - who really should be sleeping - still do? With those questions driving Luk Alloo over the coming weeks through Flanders. In the first episode lights up there tonight especially, neon-lit, because Alloo visit in the Boys Club, a gaybar in Bekkevoort. "On a Wednesday night, a night you expect that the people still in their bed because they the day after should work. But in this gay club so not," says the reportagemaker. There is also a certain dress code: shorts and T-shirt, or bare-chested. But our camera crew and I had our clothes happy to hold." Or him that no uncomfortable feeling gave? "After all those years in my profession, I am rarely uncomfortable in unknown situations. (laughs)"

Although there is in the club a 'boys only'law applies, the clientele was very diverse: from openly gay or bisexual men to transgender and married 'heterosexuals' who have not yet outed. Some come for a good chat, others for a favor. "The visit has made me really touched. I spoke of it, for example, with an ex-nco who only outte on his 38th, when he already has 3 children. I have huge respect that they tell their story dare to do on television, because twenty years ago, that was really not done. When regular folks they are, but now they see that we are in 2019 life and that they openly dare to come out for their choice."
