Derk from A.S.V.Gay
At A.S.V.Gay, in addition to all sorts of activity committees, there is also a committee that deals with more serious matters.
When something is bothering you, it's always nice to have someone to talk to. You can of course do this with someone you already know, but sometimes you might prefer to talk to someone who is less close to you, or someone who has more experience with your problem. Certainly within our association we can imagine that there are members who struggle with gender identity, sexuality, coming out, discrimination and relationships. For these members A.S.V.Gay has trustees who can be contacted via email or at drinks and activities.
If you have any questions, don't hesistate to email us: firstname.lastname@example.org. You will then be emailed back by one of us and your story will then remain between the relevant trustee and you.
Do you still remember the first time you went to an A.S.V.Gay borrel? With lead in your shoes and a big hood over your head to remain unrecognisable? Or with your chest forward and a healthy amount of curiosity?
The first time at A.S.V.Gay was different for everyone. But hopefully every first meeting is as pleasant as possible. If your first time was fun, then the chances are that you will also go to the next borrel. If you don't want to enter a pub full of strangers, you can email the trustees at A.S.V.Gay to ask for a borrel buddy. They will meet with you in advance, at Prik or at another café. Once you have gotten to know each other a little, you will go to the borrel together and your borrel buddy will introduce you to other A.S.V.Gayers.
