Dear visitors, dear members,

COVID-19 is increasingly restricting social life in Aachen and the Ref must also ask itself how we can participate in the containment of SARS-CoV2. Please keep in mind that we are not virologists and cannot assess the development and spread of the virus but are dependent on the advice and guidelines of the authorities and scientists.

With a heavy heart, the Executive Board has decided on the following package of measures:

  • The Ref is closed until further notice and all Events have been cancelled.
  • Nina is the direct contact person for organizational issues arising from the closure of the Ref. It is available to you internally or through This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  in all matters.
  • As a digital replacement we offer a Discord Sever (
  •                     Some events, such as game evenings, the self-help group and the plenary, are already taking place digitally. Please watch our social media channels for more information.
  •                   Consultation hours are only available on request and only by telephone.

We hope that the exceptional situation will soon be over and that we will be able to return to day-to-day business as soon as possible. We also hope that you will continue to be there for each other. Especially in such special times as these and especially as a queer commRefy, it is important to stand in solidarity with your fellow human beings and to help each other. So if someone in quarantine needs help with shopping or going for a walk or the like, contact us on Slack, Discord or by mail. Together we survive this crisis.

Stay safe,

Your Board
