Who we are
Queer Leiden University is a collective that aims to support and bring together queer people in The Hague and beyond. By teaming up with queer students from the KABK, we want to strengthen the LGBTQIA+ community of The Hague and support young queer artists. By symbolically bringing together the University’s theory and the Academy’s practice, we welcome creatives to combine visual and written, practical and theoretical creations to spark contemporary and relevant conversations on the experience of queer life.
We are a community of care and love, please don‘t bring hate. Homophobia, transphobia, fatphobia, ableism, racism, ageism, and other forms of discrimination are not welcome here. We believe in continuous dialogue rooted in compassion. Who you are and want to be are valid. We love you and we are here to support you. Pay appropriately and with your heart.

Consent is always essential, not just in sexual situations. By learning about consent, we can begin to move our community towards a culture that is based on consent and mutual respect. Different people have different levels of comfort with physical touch, it’s important to be aware and respectful of personal space when interacting with others. If someone seems uncomfortable with a topic-shifting their body language, looking away from you, tensing up, shortening their answer or speaking in a circle, check in with them. If they want to move on, move on.
Remember to check in. Including consent in conversation helps normalize it and makes it easier for those boundaries to be expressed and respected - both in sexual and non-sexual situations.
We made a series of educational consent guidelines, Part I: ways to ask for consent, Part II: understand consent better and Part III: practice non-sexual consent.
Together as a community, we can build a safer culture for everyone.
