our visit at queer leben

One of the best activities we had during our seminar was our visits to organizations working with LGBTIQ issues in Berlin. To be more precise it was Queer Lieben which  left me the biggest impression. They seem to be doing great job working with trans and queer people, helping to solve their everyday issues and just being there for them which is probably in many cases the mostly needed thing - to know, that there is someone who cares for you, who really wants to understand you and who treats you with a sincere empathy. We had a really nice and fruitful discussion at Queer Lieben (or better to say questions-answers session which was really enriching with all the information we got!), and I think now it is way more clear for me how such organizations work, and the ways in which the staff can be really helpful in allowing people to take time in questioning their identities, sexualities and experiences.
