Falling in love with a wonderful man, flirting with hot guys, becoming part of a big, lively and colorful community full of possibilities, … – gay, bi- or pansexual has many great and exciting facets. However, in a society that does not always understand this, there are also the other sides: knowing gay mainly as a swearword, being discriminated and bullied, experiencing violence, knowing few role models and like-minded people. But exclusions also occur in the community. And bi- and pansexual men*, who would actually like to be happy about having all possibilities, have to hear from all sides again and again that they can’t decide.
You know these difficulties, want to talk about a problem, ask a question or express doubts, but there is no one who understands you? Maybe you are also afraid of being laughed at or not being taken seriously? For all these topics and also for questions about coming out, love, sex and partnership, we are happy to listen and help – by e-mail, phone or chat.

For many, entering a together meeting point for the first time is a great inhibition threshold. Some walk round and round, cautiously looking in to see what is happening there – some then lose courage and go back home instead of going inside.
But the feedback from our visitors is almost always: “At some point I just went in and after five minutes it was my second living room!”
With the newcomer day KOMPASS (monthly in each meeting point – dates under news) and the come-in service we would like to make it easier for you to get on board. Contact us and meet with one of the staff members before opening hours.
