Dear Friends,

This time we are back in the middle of the month, and this on the 20th birthday of the Centre LGBTIQ+ CIGALE! From our side, congratulations to all those who have been involved in the success story and to the new team who are bringing a new wind to the centre!

Then we would like to invite you to our monthly, inclusive
Rosa Queer After Work. Where will it take place? From 7pm at the Tube Bar in the capital! Come along, everyone is welcome.

Then at the end we would also like to warmly invite you to our first
Rainbow Charity Night. This will take place on 3 December at the Ariston in Esch-sur-Alzette. There will be a walking dinner with lots of entertainment, and all for a good cause: the income of the evening will be donated to the EPOA aid fund for LGBTIQ+ activists in Ukraine!

Enjoy reading and best regards,
the board of Rosa Lëtzebuerg

On 15 November 2002, after many months of preparation, the Centre d'Information Gay et Lesbienne (in short: CIGALE) opened its doors. This counselling centre, founded and run for many years by Rosa Lëtzebuerg asbl, has always served a strong need of the community: to be heard and understood. It is thanks to the commitment of Roby Antony, Patrick Birgen and the late Mill Majerus that this project not only became a reality, but has also been able to rely on strong support from the Ministry of Family Affairs.

CIGALE has not only become one of the most important safe spaces in Luxembourg, it also houses the library that originated from the estate of the first president of Rosa Lëtzebuerg, Marc Grond, which has since been constantly expanded by CIGALE and Rosa Lëtzebuerg.

Today we are celebrating the twentieth anniversary of this counselling centre, which has since grown and also found its permanent place in Luxembourg. On this occasion, Rosa Lëtzebuerg asbl would like to wish the new team at the Centre LGBTIQ+ CIGALE all the best. We look forward to many joint projects!


Luxembourg has spoken and has elected their new Mr Bear for 2023; who is no other than Steve Goerend. Steve emerged victorious over the three other candidates and has made it his goal to focus especially on community work. Steve wants to inform and educate about what a "Bear" is, welcome others to the Bear community and especially make everybody feel welcome and like they belong. Rosa Lëtzebuerg would like to congratulate Steve for his victory and we hope to support him and Beardukes in theirfuture plans. We also take a moment to say thank you to Paul Feitler after three consecutive years as Mr Bear Luxembourg and for creating such a visibility and network for Luxembourg.

Thank you for your engagement and motivation!

Why do we tell stories?
Why do we read stories, especially when it comes to non-fictional ones?
What is it so fascinating about common people when compared to cyberpunk heroes, post-apocalyptic warriors, and enchanting sorceresses?
After all, if I wanted to know something about an average folk, I could just take a long look in the mirror.

Well not quite, because there are some “average” non-fictional stories that have nothing average about them and that should be told, read, repeated, heard and known so that we do not forget about them and so that we can honour the “average” people that lived through them and “The Women’s House of Detention – A Queer History of a Forgotten Prison” by Hugh Ryan does exactly this and it is a true gift to the queer community.
