Dear Friends,
The festive season is just around the corner and the winter markets are open again everywhere! This year we will again combine our Queer After Work with a visit to the Christmas market. So mark your calendars for 14 December.

We are especially looking forward to the first Rainbow Charity Night, which will take place as the conclusion of our Pride programme within the Capital of Culture programme around Esch2022. And since it also happens to fall into the Christmas season, we want to combine the long-standing tradition of the Rosa Chritsmas Dinner with the Charity Night! We therefore cordially invite all members of Rosa Lëtzebuerg to the Ariston in Esch on 3 December! Don't forget to reserve your tickets.

The most exciting news, however, we have saved for the very end! As you might have noticed on our social channels, Rosa Lëtzebuerg's youngest project is now in the starting blocks: our Rainbow Center might soon become reality and we are now looking for staff! More about this below!

Enjoy reading and best regards,
the board of Rosa Lëtzebuerg

RAINBOW CENTER:
WE ARE HIRING!

Read this article in german, french

As you will have heard, Rosa Lëtzebuerg has been working on a major project for 3 years to respond to the lack of queer encounter opportunities. We are now very happy to announce that, in close collaboration with the "Ministère de la Famille, de l'Intégration et à la Grande Région", we can plan the first stage!

If everything goes according to plan, the "Rainbow Center" will open in the next few months, a centre for queer culture that will on the one hand increase the visibility of LGBTIQ+ people in Luxembourg and on the other hand offer more activities for queer people. All this will be complementary to the services offered by the Centre LGBTIQ+ CIGALE.

In this context, we are now looking for committed staff members who want to help us in setting up and running the Rainbow Centre:
  • Chargé·e de direction (m/f/x)
    full-time (40 hours/week)
  • Gestionnaire Communauté et Projet / Educateur·trice diplômé·e (m/f/x)
    part-time (20 hours/week)
  • Gestionnaire administratif·ve et Relations Publique (m/f/x)
    part-time (20 hours/week)
You can find all details about the vacancies here!

Do you fit the profile and are you interested in helping to shape this center for the community? Then get in touch: info@rosa-letzebuerg.lu

24.11. |GOVERNMENT: PROJECT ABOUT THIRD GENDER OPTION ON THE WAY


The government of Luxembourg wants to present a bill for a third option of gender indication in the first trimester of 2023. This was announced by Justice Minister Sam Tanson (Déi Gréng) in Parliament last Tuesday. This had been preceded by an extended parliamentary question by LSAP MP Dan Biancalana. The creation of a third option was already foreseen in the 2018 coalition programme. This should make it possible for intersex and trans people to choose a gender entry that is not male or female.

Mr. Bear Luxembourg 2023, Steve Goerend, elected in October at the last Bear Pride, met with members of the Rosa Lëtzebuerg board on 16 November. On this occasion, the board members presented the activities of Rosa Lëtzebuerg asbl as well as new projects, such as the Rainbow Center.

22.11. | EXCHANGE OF MR. BEAR LUXEMBOURG WITH THE BOARD OF ROSA LËTZEBUERG
 

One week after the 20th anniversary of the Centre LGBTIQ+ CIGALE, the representatives of the boards of Rosa Lëtzebuerg asbl and the Centre LGBTIQ+ CIGALE met for a periodic exchange. In addition to evaluating the activities of the activities of the past year at both organisations, the upcoming projects were also presented. Afterwards, the last documents of the Rosa Lëtzebuerg Archives, which for historical reasons were still stored at CIGALE, were handed over to Rosa Lëtzebuerg to be integrated into the Queer Archive.

In return, Rosa Lëtzebuerg handed over 43 books on permanent loan to the Centre LGBTIQ+ CIGALE so that they could be used by the jointly established "Marc Grond" library and thus by the public.
