Our QueerNetwork at the Charité

The Charité QueerNetwork would like to bring together queer topics and interests at the Charité and represent them more visibly in clinics, research and teaching.

Write us an email to: queer(at)charite.de!

The initiators of the network include the student queer department, the equal opportunities officer of the student council initiative and the women's and equal opportunities officer of the Charité. In addition, through the Charité's diversity network, we are in close contact with other initiatives that promote diversity at the Charité.


The aim of our network is to create a space for open and trusting exchange for both employees and students. Together we want to counter discrimination, strengthen acceptance and pool forces.

We want to be active in the future, e.g. through

  •      Regular get-togethers and newsletters
  •      Events
  •      Participation in international days of action on queer topics, such as the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT).


Dates and locations of our QueerNetzwerk Charité round tables and the plenary of the Queer Union are announced via our anonymous mailing list, which is currently managed by the women’s and equality officers.


Do you want to be part of the network?


Just send an email to queer(at)charite.de!


We look forward to hearing from you!

Queer

Queer is an English loan word that originally denoted everything different, and then developed into a swear word, which was mainly directed against sexual and gender minorities. It has been a defiance since the 1980s and has since changed into a political self-designation for the LGBTTIA* movement. In “LSBTTIA*” the individual letters stand for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, transgender, intersexual and asexual and the “*” stands for all other identities and orientations.


Queer does not want to and cannot be a sharp definition, but recognizes the fluidity of human reality in all its facets and nuances.
