Welcome to the online appearance of the Queerreferat of the Universities of Aachen.
As an association kept alive by students, we want to be a place for all people who consider themselves being bonded to the LGBTIQ* community (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, intersex, queer).
Just come over (you don't have to register or be a member) if you've ever asked yourself one of the following questions:
Where do Aachen's LGBTIQ*s meet?
Who cares for our interests?
Is there a special program for LGBTIQ* at the RWTH, FH or KatHo?
Where and how do I get to know other LGBTIQ*s?
