We have counselors because sexuality can give a lot of problems dealing with it. However, this isn’t the only reason, there are so many reason a person is in trouble and would like to talk about it with somebody. It almost always help to be able to talk with someone and discuss your issues.
Our counselor during board year 2015 – 2016 is Yvette van Steen.
My name is Yvette van Steen, I’m 21 years old, live in Utrecht and currently study in Amsterdam. After I moved from my birth place Zeewolde to Utrecht I first met Anteros. As a newcomer it was quite nice to become a member of this union. It became a lot easier to be part of a fun group of people I could drink a couple of beers with and with which I could get wild during meetings and parties.
At Anteros a lot of people and I share experience in coming out of the closet. I personally found it quite comforting that I could have a lot of fun with them as well as having a deep conversation about topics like being homosexual, bi or lesbian.I am a counselor for people within and outside of the union. So if you would like to talk about something, ask questions, get tips or share experience, don’t hesitate about contacting me! If have questions about going out in Utrecht or other activities and topics, you can always contact me by mail.
You want to join us on a meeting, but find it too exciting to come alone? No problem! Here at Anteros we have meeting buddies you can ask to join you on one of our meetings. This person can show you what we do at meetings and introduce you to members of the union.
