Dear EULEVOTO-participants and supporters,
This year EULEVOTO is organized by the women’s volleyball department of Gay Sports Groningen Goud in the province of Groningen.
I feel honored to have been invited to welcome all teams and players. So a very warm welcome to you in our Rainbow province of Groningen.
As a province, we feel it is important that everybody can be themselves and that everyone feels safe. Together with other organizations we have therefore composed a Rainbow covenant. We are very happy that all mayors in the province of Groningen signed this covenant last year. The message speaks for itself: all mayors are committed to safety and social acceptation of the LHBTI-community.
At a more local level, differences in acceptation and emancipation exist in our province. Examples are ample, unfortunately. A colleague of mine for instance has stopped holding hands with her wife in the streets. She does not want to run the risk of her kids being hurt.
We have to stand together. Everyone has a right to safety, equal treatment and a fair chance to participate in society.
We unite to make sure everybody can be who she/he is.
I wish everyone a very sportive and fun tournament!
The LGBT community in Groningen warmly welcomes you in Gro-ningen. We are very proud that GoudGroningen is this years host of the international Eulevoto volleyball tournament. We hope you have a very sporty and fun easter weekend in our lovely town. We hope that you will enjoy all the venues in our town that you will be visiting during your stay with us. Groningen has a long history of being a gay friendly town. So we hope you’ll feel welcome and have a chance to see a little more of Groningen besides the volleybalcourt. We like to thank the organisation of Goud Groningen for bringing this fantastic tournament once more to Groningen. Have a lovely stay in our town and I hope to see you all at the closing party.
Annelies van Santen,
Chairperson of the lgbtiq community
