MY GENDER, MY PRIDE

De Kringen is an organisation that cannot be ignored in the LGBT-plus community. There have been circles in the Netherlands for almost 60 years. The members of a circle meet every month in a fixed composition for good talks, sharing experiences, personal stories or having firm discussions. A circle undertakes!

Members go out together, to the movies, cook together, go to a Pride together or undertake cultural activities.

People of any sex, (non)gender, orientation, skin colour, political preference, etc. are welcome. The unifying element of all circles is being over LHBTI.

De Kringen brings people together. Gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people or anyone else (aged 18 and over) can be themselves and enjoy each other’s company. Regardless of your gender identity, you are welcome to join one of our existing circles. Or we can advise and support you in setting up your own circle.

If you join one of our circles, you will meet new people and be completely yourself. The people in such a circle meet one or more times a month. For a cosy evening cooking together or an afternoon out. It is entirely up to you. There are circles throughout the Netherlands and often there are several circles in your neighbourhood. This way there is always a circle that suits you. For more information, go to https://dekringen.nl/wees-jezelf/

The people on board are waving to the public on the shore with waving hands. By doing so, we invite people to become part of the LGBTI+ Community and to really meet each other. Because real encounters promote the recognition and acknowledgement of one’s sexuality and gender identity. These hands feature the colours of various gender flags to support the theme ‘My Gender, My Pride’.
