every 4th sunday of the month from 4 to 6 pm
You identify yourself as a-, demi-, grey- *sexual and/ or *romantic or you feel otherwise belonging to the A* spectrum? Maybe you’re not really sure about your Aidentity yet and have a thousand questions in your head? If you are looking for other people on the ASpectrum with whom you can share your feelings, thoughts, experiences, doubts and self-knowledge, then the group A*Spec Erfurt is just right for you.
This group is a safe space for people on the A*Spectrum – a little break from the societal pressure of normative expectations of sexual and romantic relationships and binary gender ideas. We create this space together by sharing our experiences, having discussions, and planning activities – or simply spending relaxed time together at movie, cooking, or game nights, craft activities, picnics together in the park, and much more.
The group was founded in March 2022 as the first A*Spec group ever in Thuringia, but had to take a break temporarily. Since June 2023 we are active again and meet regularly in the rooms of the Queer Center Erfurt in Johannesstraße 52.
If you feel addressed, have questions or are interested in an exchange, feel free to contact us at:
We are looking forward to meeting you!

Queer bouldering group Erfurt
every tuesday from 6:30 pm in the Nordwand
o you like to boulder, are you looking for a new group and want to boulder together with others from the community? Or you always wanted to try yourself on the wall, but still need a push? Or you just want to meet new people? Then we look forward to meeting you! The queer bouldering group is open to all experience levels. So you don’t need to have any experience, just a desire to get moving. For those who want to work on their technique, we can help with trainer skills.
We meet every week on Tuesday from 6:30 pm in the Nordwand, the climbing and bouldering hall in the north of Erfurt. Shoes can be rented in the hall, the entrance fee is a solidarity fee and is supported by the Naturfreunde as our cooperation partner. So you pay what you can afford every time.
The climbing hall is a binary space, which means that changing rooms and toilets in the hall are not signposted in a gender-neutral way. However, you are welcome to come to the hall already changed, most people do that anyway. We as group leaders are also in talks with the hall to make the space more queer-sensitive. If there is a need, we as responsible persons will be happy to help.
Are you interested? Then just drop by or contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
At short notice you can reach us under the following number: 0176 62623645.
The Queer Boulder Group is a cooperation of Naturfreunde Thüringen, TIAM e.V. and the Queer Center Erfurt.
every 2nd Tuesday of the month from 6 p.m.
Coming out – what is that actually?
“I am different.” – For most people, this realization is the beginning of the process of their coming out. Homosexual, bi-sexual or pansexual, asexual or aromantic, queer, trans* or inter* – it is not easy to find the way to one’s own sexual orientation and/or gender identity and to talk about it.
Recognizing and acknowledging your own sexuality and/or gender identity is one side of coming out. But how do I tell my parents, my friends, my colleagues? What should I share, what are my limits, do I have to share everything? You are right with us if you are still completely unsure about all this; and we are also happy to welcome you if your coming out is already behind you, but you would like to continue to exchange ideas.
Together, many things are easier. That’s why we try to give you the confidence to go your own way in our coming out group.
We share experiences and tell our stories.
But it’s also okay if you don’t want to say anything. Then just come and listen.
Our group is open to everyone, no matter your gender identity or sexual orientation.
We meet every second Tuesday of the month starting at 6:00pm in the rooms of the Queer Center. If you have any questions, feel free to email us at email@example.com.
Parents with trans* children
the age of the children should be between 5 and 14 years old
once every quarter: on the 3rd Saturday of the 2nd month
When one’s own child does not match the gender identity assigned to them at birth, not only the child but also the parents and close caregivers often face great challenges and questions:
How do I meet my child’s needs?
What are the needs, particularities and sometimes also obstacles?
What do I have to consider in everyday life, at school or with the authorities?
How will my child become happy? Isn’t it something beautiful that my child is exactly the way they are?
The Queer Center Erfurt provides a quarterly exchange and meeting offer for parents and relatives with trans* children, in which such thoughts can be shared and discussed.
For this purpose, we first offer a conversation room for the parents, while the children can get to know each other in the next room under pedagogical guidance and play together for a while. Afterwards we want to have lunch together and move into a more open getting to know each other.
If you have any further questions or comments, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you 😊.

Kinky in Erfurt
Young BDSM-meeting for kinksters, poly*s and queers
for all 18 years and older
once a month, fridays from 7pm.
We invite to the open BDSM-meeting for all from 18 years.
We want to create a sexpositive atmosphere for kinksters, queers and poly*people and be a safespace to exchange and get to know each other in a protected space. We are open for new participants and beginners.
At the beginning we will have a small round of introductions and exchange about upcoming events, questions from the round or suggestions for topics.
If you want, you can bring something to eat, so we can have a buffet together.
In order to function as a Safespace, we ask that you follow a few rules:
- We don’t have a dress code, just come in your everyday clothes or however you feel comfortable.
- We are not a dating service! Of course we can’t and don’t want to forbid discreet flirting, but we reserve the right to expel pushy or aggressive people from the Stammtisch.
- The same applies to people who think they have to discriminate or insult others.
- Since we are primarily looking for like-minded people and want to exchange ideas, we ask you to refrain from obvious playing(?).
- Please do not take photos on site. It’s best to leave your smartphone in your pocket as much as possible 😉
If you are interested in participating or for more info, get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org

Self-help group for trans and non-binary people
every 1st Sunday of the month from 3 to 5 pm at the Queer Center.
Who can participate?
Anyone who is trans or non-binary themselves or still unsure. This can also mean that you may not have a word for your gender. For example, if everyone says you’re a man or a woman, but somehow that doesn’t fit you at all, you’re also welcome. We know how different people are. There is no right way to be trans or non-binary. It doesn’t matter if or how much you want to change your body. It also doesn’t matter how many people you tell that you are trans or non-binary. It also doesn’t matter how many other steps you’ve already taken or how many you still have ahead of you.
What can you expect?
After a short welcome, we want to talk about topics that currently move us. Each session has a main topic that we talk about, but of course you can also bring up other topics. We publish the topic of the session beforehand here in the event calendar and on the social media channels of the Queer Center. However, it’s also okay to say nothing at all. No one has to participate. If you just want to drop by and listen, that’s ok. After 2 hours the official part is over. However, anyone who feels like it can then stay a little longer and chat a bit.
Do you need anything else?
We want as many people as possible to feel comfortable with us. If you would like to participate but still need something or have a question, feel free to write to us at email@example.com.
We try to be as barrier-free as possible. If you need barrier-reducing measures, write us. We will then try to find a solution. The room is accessible with a wheelchair. However, the toilets are unfortunately not barrier-free.
We are looking forward to seeing you!
