Personnes

Tu rencontreras des jeunes LGBT*I* au together. Tu peux déjà faire la connaissance de quelques-un.e.s des membres du personnel. L’un d’entre eux/elles est toujours sur place pendant les heures d’ouverture et se tiennent à disposition comme interlocuteur.trice pour toutes les actions, idées, difficultés et questions personnelles. Tou.te.s ont une formation pédagogique et prennent la confidentialité très au sérieux. Ils/elles ne veulent pas seulement te soutenir – si nécessaire – mais aussi te faire penser à autre chose de temps en temps, encourager le plaisir et la communauté.

Pour le reste, ils/elles sont – heureusement – très différent.e.s les un.e.s des autres!
