Social involvement in Anteros
Since we are an association that’s primarily oriented towards LGBTQ+ students we do definitely try to make a difference for the LGBTQ+ community in Utrecht and the rest of the Netherlands. From having talks with the Universities of Utrecht about LGBTQ+ policy at their schools, officially raising the rainbow/progress flag at all the uni buildings during pride/purple friday and coming-out day, visiting the commissioner of the king, visiting the mayor of Utrecht and dousing ourselves in all the colours of the rainbow during the Canal Pride in Utrecht on our own boat. Our presence in Utrecht on a social level is definitely noticeable especially with our beautiful banner that will be hanging beautifully above the road during the UIT-week. We are also very proud to be working with PANN and our favourite pub Bodytalk, as they also make a stand for the LGBTQ+ community and raise awareness.
If you’re a bit of a social butterfly and all of this makes your social involvement heart beat a little bit faster then Anteros might definitely be the right place for you. Here’s an overview of some of the amazing activities that we have organised for our more socially involved members. Think of political debates, symposia about gender and diversity, lecture about PrEp, watching a social relevant movie, and a sex and drugs quiz. Activities that, if you decide to join us, you could be taking part in!
Serieuscie (Social committee)
In our association we have 1 committee that dedicates that themselves towards Anteros’s social involvement and social activities, and that’s the ‘Serieucie’. This committee organises activities that have a wide range of seriousness, from lectures where they try to raise more awareness on suicide prevention to somewhat lighter topics such as watching movies or political debates.
