English information

The Transgender Group Nijmegen is a fun and diverse Group of transgenders, transmen, transwomen, transvestites, genderqueers and anyone who feels connected to the transgender community. We’ve been meeting each other and working on transgender visibility with COC Nijmegen since February 2007. We organize monthly meetings and frequent lectures, workshops, movie nights and other social activities.


Our Café Night 

No matter what kind of transgender you are, meeting people with similar experiences is important to many and it’s just fun. That is why every second Thursday of the month we have a café night at café Van Deelen, Bloemerstraat 2 in Nijmegen, and every 4th Friday of the month we have a café night at the Pink House (which isn’t actually pink) at the St. Antoniusstraat 1, Nijmegen. Both events star at 7.30 PM.

Interested? Just drop by. How you dress and whether you identify with any label doesn’t matter, everyone is welcome. Are you nervous about visiting or do you have questions? Fill in our contact form or contact us at info@transgendernijmegen.nl and one of us will answer your questions, introduce you to the group and ensure that you do not have to take your first steps on your own.


Our Sports Group

A nice day playing sports, it seems simple, but for many transgender people it is not easy to feel at home in a sports team. That is why Transgender Group Nijmegen started its own sports group: to exercise, have fun and meet other transgender people. We play all kinds of sports and have space for the young and old, fit and less fit. Of course our dressingrooms are not gendered and no one cares what you wear as long as you feel comfortable playing sports in it.
In 2017 participation is free and you do not need to sign up. You can bring your friends and family. Interested? Just drop by.

Every 1st Sunday of the month, 19:30 – 21:30.
When we play inside, it is usually in the Gymnasium Palembangstraat Molukkenstraat 1, Nijmegen (dressing room open from 19:15). Always check our website to be sure.
