IT’S THE T: IT NEEDS TO GET BETTER

Since 2019, the political rainbow networks of D66, VVD, PvdA, CDA and SP have been sailing together under the motto: Unity for the Community. In 2020, GroenLinks also joined this initiative. The SP has declined the honour for this year and will not be taking part. As political rainbow networks within D66, VVD, PvdA, GroenLinks and CDA, we want to show that we are fighting together for the interests of our community within our various political parties. Even if the political colours differ, together we are a rainbow.

This year in Unity we stand for the Trans community. A community that remains too often underexposed and sometimes even forgotten within the larger LGBT+ community. In addition, the Trans community is struggling with major issues. Think for example of the enormous waiting lists in transition care, the badly arranged transition leave and the negative treatment and violence the Trans-community has to deal with on a daily basis. That is why this year we decided together to spread this pride by saying that we, the LGBTQ+ community AND the politicians, have to take care of our Trans Community: It’s the T: It Needs to Get Better.

With the theme “It’s the T: It Needs to Get Better”, we want to address different issues that the Trans community is facing. A multitude of issues will come together on the boat under the common umbrella of “It’s the T: It Needs to Get Better”. This ties in nicely with the broader theme of ‘My Gender, My Pride’, where space is offered for questions of identity and equality.
