QUEER

The aim of ‘3 Layers’ (Foundation for Equality) is to put LGBTQIA+ themes on the agenda and to raise awareness in the process. Always aware of the urgency within the Queer Community.

At the same time, in recent years it has become more visible that gender diversity is on the rise. Where in the past it was mainly about who you fell in love with, now it is also about how you identify yourself and how you (openly) express your own gender, your own Pride.

Members within the community do not always feel comfortable with the general gender norms and see their own development as a search for a gender category that suits them better. Therefore, as a community, we need a ‘Queer Emancipation’, a broader concept than just LHBTQIA+ emancipation. With the term “QUEER” we want to look beyond the existing terminology and acknowledge not only sexual diversity, but also gender identity and gender expression, without excluding anyone.

3 Layers, Foundation for Equality’ aims to promote and organise events that support the queer perspective in society through art and culture.
