News for June

Hallo liebe Menschen!

Welcome to the first newsletter of QUEER_gesprochen?! In this newsletter, I want to give an overview about new (and ongoing) offerings and some general informations in case you don’t know much about what this little project is about. Next to the titles you find information about the language the offer is using.
If you’re interested to get the newsletter per email, please fill out this form. 🙂 

And since I personally find newsletter with only events and courses a bit boring, I want to give you a little exercise as a bonus! You find it in the General Information section.

General information

Bonus exercise
It’s still Queer History Month, so I want to give you a little exercise connected to German queer History: 

Which terms were used in the 19th century to talk about homosexual men and women in German?  

(If you don’t know, you actually find this information in one of the May postings IG-/FB-postings of QUEER_gesprochen?!) 

What is QUEER_gesprochen?! and who is it for?
QUEER_gesprochen?! is a project which offers German language courses for LGBTQIA*, trainings for teachers and companies about diversity sensitivity and gender neutral language. 

It is for people of all sizes and shapes, regardless of ethnic or social origin, class, religion, gender, sexuality, sexual preference, disability, age, profession or anything else that makes us who we are. I create the courses as a safe space for all who want to learn the German language but feel uncomfortable in other classes or want to connect with other queer folk.

If not statet differently, all courses are online.
