Hetero? Das ist doch nur eine Phase!

Since the winter semester 2014 there is the Rainbow Café at the HdM!

We offer a meeting place for LGBTQIA+ students, help with coming out and a safe space to exchange ideas and have fun!

When? Wo?
We plan common experiences in our WhatsApp group (contact persons in charge). We meet about once a month for various activities. The exact dates will be published soon!

Queer [‘kwɪə(ɹ)] was originally a negative term for people who deviate from the norm and was used in a derogatory way against homosexuals in particular. However, we have since reclaimed the term as a neutral umbrella term for all members of the LGBTQIA+ community. 🙂
LGBTQIA+, as well as any modified form of the term (in Germany often LSBTQIA+), stands as an acronym for the community of homosexuals (gays and lesbians), bisexuals, transgenders, pansexuals, asexuals, nonbinaries, intersexuals and many more!
