Welcome to the Amsterdam Student Association Gay!

Our Association

Welcome to 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.

Lustrum II

During the academic year 19|20 A.S.V.Gay will be grandly celebrating its IIโฟแตˆ lustrum. Check back soon for more information about the upcoming year.


Pride Amsterdam 2019's theme is "Remember the past, create the future". The focus is on the Stonewall riots, which broke out in New York 50 years ago and marked a new period in LGBTQ+ history worldwide. In honour of the first Pride Parade in the world that was held in New York City a year later, in 1970, the city is organising World Pride 2019. For more information about this history, check the Pride Amsterdam site or watch the documentary about Stone Wall of History Channel.

By participating in the Amsterdam Pride Canal Parade, A.S.V.Gay contributes to the visibility of LGBTQ+ students in society. Our boat will highlight our theme, #BreakDownTheNorms, by breaking the norms that forbid us to love and to be ourselves.

To celebrate and remember today, we interviewed transgender member of A.S.V.Gay Michael about his own experiences with being trans. Read on
