Have you got questions or doubts about your sexuality or gender, or do you simply need a chat? Don’t keep it bottled in. Our volunteers from the chat and reception team are here for you!
Every Thursday evening between 7 pm and 9 pm, you can find somebody willing to help you in Den Draak cafe. Ask for us at the counter. You don’t need to make an appointment. A welcome interview is always anonymous, and it doesn’t necessarily have to be in the cafe.
If you can’t make it on Thursdays, get in touch to make an appointment at another time or place. Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you prefer to chat online, contact Lumi with your questions at any time: https://www.lumi.be/. They’ll listen to what you have to say and can also refer you to specialist assistance.If you need to speak to someone urgently because you’re having suicidal thoughts, or know someone else in this situation, contact the suicide hotline immediately: www.zelfmoord1813.be.
