To create a sense of community – this is the goal of the two initiators of UM Pride, a new association for homosexual, bisexual and transgender employees and students. According to Peter Bootsma, one of the initiators: “Until now, there was no other way for gays and lesbians at UM to meet one another. At UM Pride they can exchange experiences on what’s going on at work or in societies. Not that there are problems at UM. At least, not that I know of.” On Wednesday 23 March, UM Pride will officially kick off with a get-together (sponsored by COC Limburg) at 17.00 at the Kruithuis, Tongerssestraat 53. Everyone – including heterosexuals – is welcome.
