Pink life stories

Based on a number of conversations, volunteers take the time to write down their story in book form – supplemented with photos and other memorabilia – together with the homosexual older person.

 

In the end, the narrators themselves decide what will be in their book of life. Of course the narrator will receive a copy, as will IHLIA and De Rietvinck, which will add the book to its collection.

 

Special stories

 

The aim of the collection, however, is not only that current and future generations can get to know these extraordinary stories, but also that the storyteller can tell her or his life story – often for the first time – and get recognition for it. That is why the books were officially presented and handed over in several rounds.

 

With the help of various grants and many volunteers, IHLIA has now been able to turn 43 stories into a beautiful book.
