belonging versus lonliness

Everybody can sometimes feel lonely. As human beings we have a natural longing for social connection and support by others.

Due to individual and structural discrimination queer people have an ever higher risk to suffer from chronic loneliness.

In cooperation with the Berlin State Office for the Equality of Treatment – against Discrimination, we are village has set itself the goal for 2023/24 to offer some programming on the issue of loneliness in the queer community.

We aim to gain a better understanding of how people feel within their social environment, and have created a survey.

Your honest answers will help us develop measures and strategies that can contribute to addressing loneliness and generate a greater sense of belonging.

Please answer the following questions as honestly as possible. We kindly ask you not to provide any personal information that could reveal your identity. Your responses will be treated confidentially

*The free-of-charge programming includes:

  • Talks & Panel discussions
  • Strategy workshops to explore other choices when feeling lonely

  • Film- and book envenings
  • Storytelling
