A safe space

HvA Pride is a community of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences that welcomes everyone who feels connected to the LGBTQIA+ community.

What are we striving for?

Since the foundation of HvA Pride we have been actively working on an inclusive university. We want to ensure that you can be yourself here on the AUAs, especially when you cannot live your true self at home. To achieve inclusiveness, we have set up the following goals:

  1. Increase visibility of the community in the AUAS
  2. Raise LGBTQIA+ acceptance within education
  3. Create a safe study and work environment
  4. Build a stronger connection by organizing activities

We enter the conversation, we celebrate, we communicate and we are. We are who we truly are.
