It’s almost 2020 and the start of a new decade! 2020 is a very special year for us, as A.S.V.Gay will be celebrating its anniversary, our tenth to be precise, on February 23.
We are certainly looking forward to this. But enough about what is to come, we would also like to inform you about what we did in December.
In this last month of the year we had some wonderful events organized. We started the month of December with a sister drink in Utrecht with all sister associations: the other GLBTQ+ student associations in the Netherlands. Our sisters being U.H.S.V. Anteros from Utrecht, Outsite from Delft, Ganymedes from Groningen, DiTo! from Nijmegen, and Exaltio from Enschede. It is always great to meet the other associations, because that way, you get to know other GLBTQ+ students from all over the country.
Of course, there is also the Christmas dinner in December, organized by our wonderful activities committee. The food is great! After dinner we exchange gifts, as names have been drawn for whom you should buy a small gift.
Most are happy with their presents. Some people are less enthusiastic because someone pulls a prank on them, only to be made happy later when they receive their real gift.
To close the year at A.S.V.Gay, we traditionally have the ready-for-the-year drink, which is always held in the beautiful café PRIK. We always make it a karaoke evening, and have a toast on the upcoming year. The evening is hosted by Nutella Versace, who chats the various songs together and plays a number of fun games. Thus, we are able to say goodbye to a wonderful A.S.V.Gay year, a year that will always be special to many.
In January, of course, we have many wonderful things planned. We will start the year with a real escape room experience with our sister student unions, having to work together to try to escape from a prison (the next column will tell you all about it!).
We will also take a trip to Brussels. The travel committee is organizing this weekend with a Studio 100 theme, so we hope to see Mega Mindy and Samson in person!
In January, our open drinks series will also start again, so if you want to get acquainted with A.S.V.Gay to see if it is something for you, you are more than welcome on January 29 and February 5 at Amstel54! See you there!
