Since 2019 the municipality of Hilversum actively tries to improve the social acceptance and safety of our LGBTI community. LGBTI stand for lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders, and intersex people.
Know me, love me
The social acceptance of LGBTI requires our everyday attention. Positive attention, that is. Know me, love me. We want to put our LGBTI community in the spotlight and arrange meetings between LGBTI and other Hilversummers. Therefore, the municipality of Hilversum will organize, in collaboration with LiveHilversum and as many other societal and cultural institutions of Hilversum as possible, many different activities in the coming years.
The week of October 11th and October 18th 2019 was the first Rainbow Week in Hilversum. For an entire Week Hilversum was all about inclusiveness and diversity. We celebrated the Rainbow Week with lots of activities and parties.
An awareness campaign was organized around the Rainbow Week in which we made the colors of the rainbow shine and call for respect and acceptance for everyone. In Hilversum, everyone can shine.
