Counselling für gay (Schwule), bisexual und trans*

The current situation is very difficult for many of us and we would like to continue our counseling. Due to the current situation regarding the Corona virus (Covid-19) we have reorganized our counseling. If something is bothering you, you want to clarify questions or just look for an open ear, we are still there for you. According to health authorities, we are still at an early stage of the pandemic and we can all make a lasting contribution to slowing virus spreading by restricting social life for the coming weeks. You can therefore reach us primarily via email. We can also make an appointment to make a phone call or video chat, which is of course completely non-binding and free of charge for you. We would like to support you with our peer support, especially in difficult times. Please send us an email to: trans [at] astafu.de

We also link you to our PGP key for encrypted communication. Everything will continue to be treated confidentially. We are always available for you, but you can count on a quick answer at our consultation times. We are always on Tuesday from 12 noon to 2 p.m. in our home office.

We are open-minded students who occupy ourselves with queer topics and problems of people in the LGBTIQ+ community. We are engaged in creating discrimination-free spaces at our university. Moreover, we want to support students with their interests and problems.

Our counseling mainly focuses on gay, bisexual and trans* topics. We welcome everyone, regardless of their gender or sexual orientation, who can benefit from our counseling.

Our door is always open (during our counseling hours) for anyone who approaches us.

In some difficult circumstances, an open discussion can offer you new perspectives and methods of resolution, as well as some ease.

We ourselves are gay or bisexual & trans*. We know the queer lifestyle in Berlin and furthermore offer various methods of assistance: if subject-matter is beyond our capacity, we will assist you in getting access to professional counseling or other forms of support. Of course, any contact you make with us will remain confidential and we are aiming to offer you a safe space.
