Community building

I dedicate some of my spare time to making the type of communities I’d want to be a part of. Being who I am, the most valuable lesson I’ve learnt so far is that it’s important to see oneself in others. Being involved in making these communities helps me feel more confident about the person I am.

All Saints Amsterdam ↗

This is a small Christian fellowship that first began gathering monthly to celebrate the Eucharist. Since then, it has become a mission church as part of the Episcopal Church in Europe. I serve on the Bishop’s Committee as a communications director.

Queer Salon

In 2018 I found myself wanting to meet queer people in Amsterdam without having to engage in the Amsterdam party scene. Within a few years, Queer Salon grew into a popular Meetup group with some 700 members. After a hiatus, Queer Salon is now back as an invite-only event, which helps me better practice the law of two feet.
