groups and discussion

 

  • You came to Germany alone or with your family?
  • You are being marginalised due to your gender identity or sexual orientation?
  • You are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*gender, intersex or not yet sure?
  • You would like to get to know other young people nearby who are experiencing the same?
  • You are looking for advice and support for your situation?

In North Rhine-Westphalia there are over 30 different groups and youth centres for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, intersex*, queer youths and young adults up to the age of 27. Even if you are not yet sure of your sexuality or your gender, you are very welcome!

For many LGBTQI* youths the groups are like a second home. Meeting friends, listening to music, playing games and exchanging views. You do what you feel like doing!

In each group, there is a group leader who acts as a contact person, welcomes you in and can give you advice when you have questions or problems.

 

You are welcome to attend every group for gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans*, intersex* and queer youths! You can look for a group near you on our homepage.

You can contact us any time if you have any questions or require further information:
