Derk from A.S.V.Gay
We are A.S.V.Gay, the Amsterdam student association for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer students! We have only been around since 2010, but in that short time we have grown to be an association of over 300 members.
As a real student association befits, A.S.V.Gay has a borrel every Wednesday night in the Amstel Fifty Four. While enjoying a drink or two, our members catch up with each other about the past week and discuss upcoming A.S.V.Gay activities; there is singing, dancing and toasting. If you would like to get know us better, don't hesitate to come on by.
Of course we can imagine that it can be quite exciting to come to one of our borrels for the first time, especially if you don't know anyone. Thankfully we have found a way to make this a little easier! Our dedicated borrel buddies are there to introduce you to our association. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will set you up with a borrel buddy!

In addition to our weekly borrels, we organise many other activities throughout the year. Our 19 committees are the backbone of our association; they organise parties, trips, sporting activities and our own boat in the Canal Parade during Amsterdam Pride!
A.S.V.Gay finds it important to bring attention to the societal position of LGBTQ+ people in Amsterdam. We try to contribute to the acceptance of LGBTQ+ people, both within and outside the association, by organising societally-oriented events.Would you like to receive more information about becoming a member of A.S.V.Gay?
