Queer Youth Organisation – diversity München

Our youth organisation: diversity München

Find out more about diversity München, our youth centre and our youth café – the home of our LGBTIAQ* youth groups in Munich. No matter whether you are LGBTIA or queer* – everyone who is younger than 27 meets here! Here, you can find more information about our offer of leisure activities, our youth café, our educational work and much more.

Welcome to our LGBTIAQ* youth organisation—the only LGBTIAQ* youth centre and youth café in Bavaria.

diversity is a self-governed youth organisation. This means that it is led by a managing committee of five volunteers, who are no older than 27.

As part of our youth work, we run a youth centre and a youth café, the “diversity Café”.

Our twelve youth groups are based on a peer-to-peer approach, which means that each group is led by volunteers, who are 27 or younger—the same age as our visitors. In fact, many of our volunteers have once started out as visitors of our youth center, before beginning their work with us.

To ensure that our voluntary group leaders are fully prepared for their important work at our organisation, we offer our JuLeiCa-training once a year.

Besides our twelve groups, we are also home to diversity@school, which provides educational work on the topic of gender identity and sexual orientation in schools and other youth centers—education from young people to young people, on equal terms.

Our groups and our offer fully rely on the involvement and support of young LGBTIAQ* volunteers. Our Team currently consists of more than 90 volunteers!

Together with our volunteers, we ensure that everyone feels welcome and safe in our youth centre and youth café.

To achieve this, we receive expert advice and support by working very closely with our social education workers—they offer consultations for young people, for parents, and for other organisations.

Every Wednesday, our diversity Bar opens at 7pm—here, everyone younger than 28 can join us.

Our organisation, diversity München e.V., was founded in 1993, though it used to carry a different name.

In mid-2007, we moved into the building of Blumenstraße 11 and in 2017, and extended our space with the diversity Café, which is located in Blumenstraße 29.

If you would like to support our work, you can do so as a supporting member or with a donation.

Our youth centre and youth café are open multiple days a week. You can find a general overview below.
