Pink Pearls Magazine Issue Nr. 5
presents the European lesbian scene
Through amongst others the social media, Pink Pearls Amsterdam gets in touch with more and more organizations and institutions that fight for LGBT rights in especially Eastern Europe. In our magazine, we ask for attention for the countries where lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are still struggling. We do that by publishing columns of EU members of parliament Ulrike Lunacek and Marije Cornelissen.
To give an impression of how we want to design our dating site and protect our users, we have done some research into the advantages and disadvantages of internet dating. As our target group consists of women only, we listened to stories of women with experience in this area. It soon became clear that it’s essential to keep control over the registrations. That’s the reason why women who want to join Pink Pearls 3Step Match must send us a valid ID before they are able to use the site. Unfortunately, a profile picture is not enough to keep a dating site pure for its target group.
Liz Bostock is 45 years old and has been living in Amsterdam for 19 years now, but she was born on the swinging island of Curaçao. Her love for music like soul, jazz, funk, groove and dance therefore mostly originates from her roots.
On Saturday 9 April, Pink Pearls Amsterdam was at the Pink Party Maastricht, an event that is organized by the COC Limburg for over 33 years.
In 2008, the London The Glass Bar closed its doors. Owner Elaine ran the – until that time – only women’s bar in the British capital. After that, she started organizing various events for lesbian and bisexual women. Her first feat of arms is POUT, a women’s night that takes all kinds of women into account; women of different ages and backgrounds turn the night into a success.
Preparations for our Amsterdam Gay Pride are in full swing. The organization is increasingly busy with programs, venues, singers and speakers, Pride participants are deciding on what music to have on their boat and are making lists of who can join on it this year, and all those on the list have started thinking about what festive outfit they will choose for the most important LGBT event of the year.
A fresh wind is blowing through the Dutch lesbian scene!
With great pride we announce that we are putting our gay heads together with Hollands latest lesbian glossy which is diligently created by the former dream-team of ZZ/This=Us now simply =
