What's out in October

Nanette’s Coming Out Symposium: Have Your Coming Out Story Heard
Thursday, Oct. 11th, 65:00PM. B031 - KOG (Steenschuur 25, Leiden)
On International Coming Out Day, in collaboration with LGBT+ Network, we are organising an "Open Fishbowl Conversation". Five seats in the center of the room are surrounded by the audience; these seats are open to whoever wishes to share their coming out story with us. Together we can [...] learn, and love in solidarity. Following a Borrel/Mixer, organized by COC Leiden.
Nanette is for sure one of the most hilarious standup comedy I have ever watched. Hannah Gadby's talent is undeniable. But Nanette is something more: it's the most tragic, emotional, tense, true, brutal standup comedy that ever existed, maybe even unique in its genre. Because Nanette, as Hannah herself says, it's about tension. "I’ve been mastering the art of tension since childhood. I didn’t have to invent the tension. I was the tension. I’m tired of tension. Tension is making me sick.". It with the tension of the story of Hannah's life that we have to deal, a tension that maybe many of us have experienced before.
A Day in a Queer Life: Lgbtq+ and Mental Health
Thursday, Oct.18th, 6:00PM. - The Hague
It is no surprise that minorities often suffer from the worst rates of mental disorders and suicide in our society; sexual minorities are no exception. But how does it work, and what can we do for ourselves? Come to our lecture to learn more about this. Following a Borrel/Mixer! Very soon we will update you on the location of both lecture and borrel ;)

QUEER AF! is the close group we were all waiting from, made of and for the LGBTQ+ community of Leiden University! A space for us, to talk, share opinions and give each other inputs, organize unformal hangouts, suggest events, talk about what we can do for our community and our university and much more. Feel free to post, start conversations, open discussions and whatever else passes through your mind! THE GOAL of this group is to simply have a safer place to get to know each other and build up a community. It is OUR SPACE, and we will build it up together.
Thank you!
