Welcome on the English version of the Dito! website, the place to find anything you have ever wanted to know about us. Dito! is the youth organization in Nijmegen for people who are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and/or Transgender (LGBT), or feel close to the LGBT-community.  We focus on people who are under the age of 26 and we try to be visible at the ROC’s, HAN, University and secondary schools in Nijmegen.

One of our main goals is to contribute to the emancipation and acceptation of LGBTs, and additionally we want to give people a chance to meet other LGBTs in a safe environment. In order to achieve these goals we have several different committees: the activities committee, the ‘dare to lunch’ committee, the ‘pink week on the campus’ committee, the  PR committee, the ‘young & out’ committee, and the introduction group committee.

All these committees organise different activities. Each month we organise a drinks night: every first Tuesday evening of the month there is an open meeting at café Mets in the city centre where you can meet other LGBTs and have drinks together. Other monthly activities include the various lunches: every second and fourth Thursday of the month there is a a lunch at the student-church with free toasted sandwiches, and there is also a lunch at the HAN every month (for the current dates of the HAN-lunch you can check our facebook page).

Next to these drinks night and lunches we have a special activity every month, which is organised by the activities committee. In the past we have gone action painting, treasure hunting and canoeing. For upcoming activities, you can check out the calendar at the top right of this page, or our facebook page. Every May, we have one special week on the campus of the HAN and the University in which we ask special attention for the acceptation of LGBTs through means of various activities. If you want to come to one of the activities during the year, but you don’t know anyone and you would like to be introduced to people beforehand, you can let us know by sending an e-mail to dito.activiteiten@gmail.com.

Dito! is a place where you can be yourself and where everyone is welcome. We hope to see you at one of our activities!
