aug. 4, 2023 om 18:00HF YOUNG x MELKWEG EXPO: Coming of age and finding your identity in LGBTQIA+-phobic societies


On Friday 4 August, from 6 to 9 PM, HF Young and Melkweg Expo are joining forces for a special, one-night-only multidisciplinary event at Melkweg Expo.

The theme of this evening centers around the current Melkweg Expo: 'Like a River', which is a photographic exploration and portrait of trans and queer communities in the Amazon by queer artist and anthropologist Daniel Jack Lyons (@danieljacklyons). This evening, we will dive into the topic of 'coming of age and finding your identity in LGBTQIA+-phobic societies'.

Different members of the community who have come to the Netherlands from faraway places, in order to find their identity, their safety, and/or their chosen families, will get into conversation about their lived and shared experiences. This will be followed by a Q&A with the audience. Besides this enlightening and in-depth panel talk, expect some mindblowing art- and music performances, bites & drinks and a beautiful and moving exhibition. A not-to-miss evening!

And the best thing is: this event is completely free of charge. All you have to do is sign up through the #linkinbio of @melkwegexpo. Stay tuned for the full programme and announcements of the speakers and performers through @melkwegexpo and @hfyoung! We hope to see you Friday 4 August!
