ANDERS & GLEICH does informative and anti-discriminatory work in the field of gender and sexual diversity in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW). Furthermore we support communities of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex and queer people (LGBTIQ*) and self-help efforts within them.

ANDERS & GLEICH works from the Queeres Netzwerk NRW e.V. (Queer Network) office in Düsseldorf and organizes and visits events all over NRW.


ANDERS & GLEICH works very closely with many different departments, clubs, and projects for and by LGBTIQ* people in NRW. Examples include SCHLAU NRW, Queere Jugend NRW (Queer Youth), Regenbogenfamilien NRW (Rainbow Families), and Netzwerk für geschlechtliche Vielfalt Trans* NRW (Network for gender diversity trans). You can find an overview of publicly funded groups and projects in NRW here.


ANDERS & GLEICH is a project in Queeren Netzwerk NRW e.V. and sponsored by the Ministerium für Kinder, Jugend, Familie, Gleichstellung, Flucht und Integration (MKJFGFI: ministry of children, youth, family, women’s equality, refugees and integration) of North Rhine-Westphalia.
