Season of LUPLove

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson


We're back, baby! After a long absence spanning almost a month, your LUPride board is back with even more events and activities! This month, we're going to be taking it easy with two borrels and a call for papers for our upcoming event in April. We're very happy to continue being part of your lives in 2018!                           

Love, your LUPride Board

Call Me by Your Name
 (2017, now in theaters).
A film that’s at once light, joyful and emotionally devastating, with deeply affecting central performances. A full-hearted romantic masterpiece. - Olly Richards, Empire
Call Me By Your Name is probably the most hailed queer movie of the year – and for good reason. While it has its flaws, like all cinema aiming to go mainstream, the movie can be described in one word - honest. It's an honest, raw, at times wickedly beautiful portrayal of love. It is the Brokeback Mountain of the new generation.
In Leiden, the movie is currently running at the Kijkhuis movie theater! Don't miss your chance to see this beautiful story for yourself!
