COC Cocktail projects are active in various COC regions, including COC Amsterdam en omstreken

Cocktail Events

Cocktail Events is a project in which the mixing of different cultural backgrounds comes first. The project focuses on LGBTI newcomers. Every month there is an accessible, inspiring, informative and social activity in Amsterdam.

There is also a private Facebook group within which information can be exchanged quickly. The evenings and Facebook group are open to all LGBT refugees regardless of status. As of fall 2019, Cocktail Events has a reach of more than 865 LGBT refugees, in particular via the Facebook group.

Coordination and cooperation

To achieve its goals Cocktail explicitly strives for collaboration with refugee and migrant organisations, as well as other aid organisations. Together with other LGBT initiatives we compiled the first draft of a Pink Card Amsterdam for LGBT newcomers, which gives an overview of available support and (health)services in Amsterdam.
