What is The Hang-Out 070?
The Hang-Out 070 is a ‘living room project’, given life to offer a safer space to the LGBTQ community of The Hague and surrounding areas. We host various ways for LHBTQ people to meet each other in a private environment so that they can truly be themselves and be among peers. This stimulates personal development and creates bridges between communities and individuals. We organise activities and events that contribute to the wishes of LGBTQ people, especially those from communities of colour or with a migrant background.
We believe that by centering ourselves on the lived experiences of this underrepresented group within an already marginalised community, we contribute to the cultural, social, and individual cohesion of society.
The Hang-Out 070 was started by Bi van Guine in 2016. They gathered a group of involved queer people of the Hague and started to host events specifically catered towards queer youth of colour. Over time, as we noticed that a broader range of queer people needed a space to come together, we said farewell to being “youth only” and focused on building an inclusive community with queer BIPOC as our focus. We have called several spaces our home over the years, and in 2021 we finally have our own space, which we share with a queer art collective. Want to contribute to our queer community?
