In ’80 I joined the women’s collective that organised the first lesbian conference ever in Amsterdam. From then on I stayed involved in both the ILIS secretariat and ILGA’s Women’s Secretariat in Amsterdam and participated in many international lesbian/gay conferences, chairing various plenary sessions. In ’82 I coordinated the Dutch demonstration in support of Eliane Morrissen.
I am an intercultural career counsellor & trainer.
At present I am a member of VTU(women against extradition) and board member & volunteer of Vesta: shelter for homeless refugee women and children in the Netherlands.
Last but not least: I love tai chi
