De meningen ge-uit door medewerkers en studenten van de TU Delft en de commentaren die zijn gegeven reflecteren niet perse de mening(en) van de TU Delft. De TU Delft is dan ook niet verantwoordelijk voor de inhoud van hetgeen op de TU Delft weblogs zichtbaar is. Wel vindt de TU Delft het belangrijk - en ook waarde toevoegend - dat medewerkers en studenten op deze, door de TU Delft gefaciliteerde, omgeving hun mening kunnen geven.

TU Delft Purple Friday 2020

Friday 11 December it will be ‘Purple Friday’ again at TU Delft. On ‘Purple Friday’ people show their solidarity with young people who are gay, bisexual, lesbian and transgender by wearing purple.

In 2010 Purple Friday was organized for the first time in the Netherlands. It always takes place at the second Friday of December and is organized by the network of Gay-Straight Alliances (GSA) of the gay interest organization of the COC. The reason for starting Purple Friday was the outcome of a research that showed that at 50% of the educational institutions it is not safe for young people to come out of the closet and that the rate of suicides amongst young gay people is five times higher than amongst heterosexual youngsters.

You are warmly invited to celebrate Purple Friday on the TU Delft campus on Friday, December 11th. There are several resources available that you can use to show that you support the Purple Friday goal. Check them out here.

TU Delft is committed to diversity and inclusion – anyone who wishes to study or work here deserves to be valued and to feel at home, irrespective of their sexual orientation, gender, age, background or physical disability. This ensures that everyone can perform to the best of their ability.
