💚 Dito! | Nijmegen
Dito! was founded in 1985 and has since then for over 30 years to improve personal and societal emancipation of LGBT+ youth. The organisation was originally called Pinkeltje, and back then there was little visibility of sexual and gender diversity in Dutch society. There was thus a great need for a platform like Pinkeltje.
In 2005, when Pinkeltje celebrated its 20th birthday, it was decided that there was a need for a new name: the birth of Dito! We introduced our Pink lunches, and in 2009 we organised the first Pink Week on Campus.
Currently, Dito! has over 200 members, around 50 of whom are active volunteers. Dito! is the oldest LGBT+ youth organisation in the Netherlands.
