Anneke van 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.
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 that day, we asked members of our club Trans+ what it means to them to be trans. Read on

Even during the corona pandemic, our 16 committees and 5 clubs continue to organize events. For example, the Party & Borrel Committee organized an online Homestaying Gala, we did a scavenger hunt through different parks of Amsterdam in pairs during our Active Members Thanking Activity, and our weekly borrels are now online. The board is constantly looking at what is possible with the current measures and what is responsible.
