Events and activities

Here we collect events and activities that are affiliated with the UT and strongly related to our community, so that everyone who is interested can get an overview of what's happening. Besides our own initiatives, the events and activities are often offered by different organizations at our university, including, for example, the studium generale, study/student associations, research groups, and strategy and policy sections.

We are just beginning and it's hard to be always up to date. If you have initiatives and activities organized in your group, contact up and we'll add them here!

  • Trans/non-binary support group [recurring]

    While trans and non-binary staff and students are a group that deserves to be celebrated, they may also face issues and struggles that their cis counterparts do not. For this reason, Th!nk with Pride is setting up a trans/non-binary meeting group. You can talk about your experience, your feeling of the moment, achievements and anything you want to share but that you can also come just to listen if you are not ready to talk yet.

    The support group will take place coming Wednesdays afternoons, in the Global Lounge in the Bastille. Sign-up is not necessary, you can walk-in as you wish.

    When: starting again in September 2022
    Where: Global Lounge, Bastille
    For any questions, you can always mail us at pride@utwente.nl

  • LGBTQ+ research; what now? [past]

    Various communities make the campus to the vibrant place that it is. As Th!nk with Pride, we are there to support and spotlight the LGBTQ+ community at the UT, both staff and students. Now, as a university, research is one of our main processes; this research also extends to research into LGBTQ+ topics and issues. This activity wants to highlight 2 initiatives:

    1. Maarten Renkema’s research into the experiences of LGBTQ+ employees
    2. The roundtables that the SEG Inclusion hosted on “sense of belonging”, focussing on the Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, Gender Expression (SOGIGE) group that is part of the SEG Inclusion

    Afterwards, we will have a discussion on how to bring the research outcomes into action. Please note: this event is open for all to attend, as making the UT an inclusive work environment, extends beyond members of the LGBTQ+ community.

    Provisional program:

    • Opening by Th!nk with Pride; who are we, what else is happening
    • Maarten Renkema’s research
    • SOGIGE research
    • Break
    • Interactive discussion on how to implement outcomes of the researches, what actions to take, and how to create a safe environment
    • Time to chat afterwards

    When: 17th of May, 15:45-17:00
    Where: RA2334

Our initiatives

  • Movie with Pride

    Think with Pride UT, together with Concordia Enschede, starts the movie program "Movie with Pride". Every month at one Friday evening, we are going to enjoy a great movie with queer colors in the beautiful and prestigeous arthouse movie theater in the city center of Enschede.

    With this program we hope to connect our queer community with a broader public and Enschede's cultural landscape. Next to our selection of movies, we also invite people from the community to choose movies and give a small, personal introduction. When queer movies are scheduled in the cinema, we will also organize a special screening with the tag 'movie with pride' and have our movie curator from Concordia to talk with how the movie connects to the pride community.

    July 1st Friday: All About My Mother (Todo sobre mi madre) 1999 Pedro Almodóvar

    Order your ticket: https://www.concordia.nl/film/all-about-my-mother-todo-sobre-mi-madre-pedro-almodovar/01-07-2022-19-30

    We hope for a nice offical opening in September, with the comedy Pride (2014, Matthew Warchus), based on the true story about queer activists allied with mineworkers in the 80's UK.
