More freedom. Less fear. More possibilities. Less wry looks. More social participation. Less exclusion. More networking. Less discrimination. More exchange. This is exactly what the Lambda Federation stands for, to enable an improvement in the living situation of young queers. The youth network is the only queer youth association in Berlin and Brandenburg, which is why it is particularly important to them to create, support and strengthen a queer community. Together with STUDIO O we created this awesome collection to support Lambda BB e.V..
The youth network was founded in 1990 at the Round Table of Youth and since then has always worked with and for queer young people up to 27 years of age. The aim of Lambda BB e.V. is to support queer youth in every situation of life and to give them the feeling to belong to it. Every member has made his own experiences in the past, which can be exchanged here at any time. This idea shall be strengthened especially in the youth groups offered - the heart of Lambda BB. These groups meet weekly and consist of up to 100 young people. 2-3 youth group leaders accompany the group and plan the projects to be offered together with the participants.
Besides, young people can take part in various offers, which they choose according to their own interests. These include, for example, the Pride-Café: an open youth café with changing themes. Or also cooking and creative offers, a large queer library and even the Lambda curriculum, which is supposed to help to deal with discrimination and conflicts better. Lambda BB e.V. also offers a project called queer@school. This is an intersectional youth democracy project that works together with young people in the school and training context.
Additionally, there are cooperation projects: The Cuties! (cooperation with Gladt e.V.) are a queer BIPoC empowerment project that also includes a youth group that meets weekly. And the LesBI*Gay T*our (cooperation with AndesARTiG e.V.) is a queer anti-discrimination and empowerment project in Brandenburg. Moreover, there is the working group queer youth in Brandenburg. This is a network meeting, where the aim is to establish and maintain queer youth welfare structures in Brandenburg.
The counselling service of Lambda can be used by queer young people both by phone and in person. Appointments can be made in advance, but also open consultations are available. Via email, telephone and chat, everyone can use the counselling service with their cooperation partner IN&OUT (cooperation with our federal association).
Let´s celebrate together! Summer events, parties, networking evenings, on-site holiday offers and queer youth trips are a fixed part of the range of offers because Lambda is a lively community. That's why new ideas, projects and possibilities of being together are constantly being developed. Have a look at the homepage www.lambda-bb.de, the Facebook page or the Instagram feed to stay up-to-date.
Of course, all these offers would not be possible without the support of the many committed young people, to whom Lambda BB e.V. would like to thank from the bottom of its heart!
