To promote social safety and acceptance of the LGBT+ community in Amsterdam, we believe it is important to also hear the stories from their immediate surroundings. So that family, friends and acquaintances feel that their opinion is allright. The latter often creates room for more understanding.
In February 2019 we started a new program to create more awareness in the immediate surrounding of the LGBT+ community. In this project we collect common stories from the environment of LGBT+ people in Amsterdam New-West, which are then be presented around the summertime. At the same time, the Storytelling Centre also trains LGBT+ people in countries such as Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia and Serbia in making their own stories.
