Rainbow Cities to Continue LGBTI-friendly Policy

by our Editors in History & Politics , 07 augustus 2017

Dit artikel is ook in het Nederlands beschikbaar

The 45 Rainbow Cities want to continue their policy aimed at increasing social acceptance and the emancipation and security of LGBTIs. This intention is recorded in the declaration of intent Van Regenboog naar Horizon, which was presented at the city hall in Den Bosch during Pink Saturday 2017.

The declaration was presented to the president of Emancipation of the Ministry of Education Jacqueline Prins by councillor Eric Logister (‘s-Hertogenbosch) and Annemiek van de Ven (Oss).

The declaration of intent describes how the Rainbow Cites will continue their LGBTI policy. ‘By cooperating even better, for example with schools, sports associations and youth work. And to transform the projects developed in the rainbow program into a more structural approach.’ In addition to this, the Rainbow Cities want to incorporate the issue into other policies, such as youth education and their sports policy.

The Rainbow Cities have indicated that the experiences with the scheme are good. They are positive about the support from the Netherlands Centre for Social Development Movisie, as well as their cooperation with the local COCs and the local LGBTI movements. They see the necessity of continuing this policy. For the implementation of their LGBTI policy, the Rainbow Cities receive funding from the state.

Next to the organising cities of Pink Saturday 2017 Oss and Den Bosch (’s-Hertogenbosch), the 45 Rainbow Cities consist of the following cities: Alkmaar, Amersfoort, Amsterdam, Arnhem, Assen, Breda, Capelle a/d IJssel, Delft, Den Haag, Deventer, Diemen, Dordrecht, Eindhoven, Enschede, Goes, Groningen, Haarlem, Heerlen, Helmond, Hengelo, Hoorn, Leeuwarden, Leiden, Leidschendam-Voorburg, Lelystad, Maastricht, Middelburg, Nijmegen, Oldambt, Purmerend, Roermond, Rotterdam, Schiedam, Sittard-Geleen, Sneek/Sud West Fryslan, Tilburg, Utrecht, Venlo, Weert, Westland, Zaandam, Zoetermeer, and Zwolle.
