Yes I like sport and I am gay, so it couldn’t get any better.
I played badminton at Amsterdam Gay badminton club for one summer and took part in a big Europe gay badminton tournament in Amsterdam.
Yes everything is “gaysified” nowadays, isn’t it fun? ASV-Gay is an association for gay students where I have met many incredible people and have made many wonderful memories.
I met my “Brazilian brother from another mother” friend there and thanks to him I’ve got “attending my first gay wedding” off my list.
Besides all the fun stuff, I volunteered for Aids Healthcare Foundation in Amsterdam for 3 years (not saying that this is not fun, but it is more of a work).
I got to learn how to deliver HIV tests, to educate people about AIDS, to go to different gay prides in Europe to hand out condoms, to be strangely surrounded by heavy-metal gay fans in a club, and to take a photo of Conchita Wurst.
Gay community The gay community in Amsterdam is truly amazing for its liveliness.
There are plenty of groups, clubs, associations, and organizations for gay people here.
The word GAY does not stop any Amsterdamers to enjoy a good night out at a good bar.That was the reason why four years ago when I packed my stuff and moved to Amsterdam from Vietnam for my bachelor degree, I expected nothing but great stuff for my gay life here. Acceptability Coming from a developing country where certain matters like homosexuality are pretty much still in the non-discussable zone at family dinner tables, I struggled to be my true self with my family and friends.Here, simply no one cares about who you cuddle with in bed.And then come the memories, I took part in organizing 2 oversea trips as a member of the traveling committee, I went on my first skiing trip, I wore a jaguar onesie to a Halloween party, I puked during a beer relay game on a weekend trip, I got to see the beauty of Dutch countryside in a treasure hunt event.I treasure the friendships and the memories I have made so far.
