Derk from A.S.V.Gay
With over 300 members, the Amsterdamse Studentenvereniging Gay is the largest LGBTQ+ student association in the Netherlands, as well as one of the largest social student associations in Amsterdam. We organise all kinds of different activities for our members each month.
A.S.V.Gay combines meeting new LGBTQ+ people and discovering Amsterdam with gezellige borrels and smashing parties. We are committed to improving the position of LGBTQ+ people in society, both in the Netherlands and elsewhere. In addition, we offer our members the opportunity for self-discovery and the development of their talents.
During the academic year 19|20 A.S.V.Gay will be grandly celebrating its IIⁿᵈ lustrum. Our Lustrum Committee is organising the Grand Lustrum Game, and you can already sign up for it. We start on the 10th of September, so be quick! Read on
The opening party of the academic and A.S.V.Gay year 19|20 took place at SOHO on Wednesday the 28th of August. Although this is always a special moment, since it marks the new board starting their year and some members see each other again for the first time since before the summer holidays, it was extra special this time. This year is our IIⁿᵈ lustrum year, because on February 23, 2020, A.S.V.Gay will celebrate its 10th birthday.
Our founding board came by to celebrate this beautiful moment and to open the year together with the Lustrum Committee and the board. Chair of the Ist board Fien de Vries cut the ribbon under the supervision of members, new members and potential members, and then the party got started! All in all it was a successful evening.
Check back soon for more information about the upcoming lustrum year. Would you like to find out more about the history of A.S.V.Gay? Take a look at our history page!
March 31st is internationally recognised as Transgender Day of Visibility, which takes place every year to raise and amplify the voices of trans people and to highlight the importance of inclusion of transgender people within and beyond the LGBTQ+ community. To celebrate and remember today, we interviewed transgender member of A.S.V.Gay Michael about his own experiences with being trans. Read on
