Rainbow Cities 2022

14 October | Jaarbeurs Utrecht

Movisie organises the Congress Regenboogsteden 2022 (Rainbow Cities 2022) on the 14th of October. On this day representatives of all municipalities, local (LGBTI+) organisations, social professionals and other interested parties will meet in the Jaarbeurs in Utrecht.

Together we will discuss rainbow policy in the form of interesting workshops and sessions, an attractive plenary programme and various networking opportunities.

Paul van Yperen participates on behalf of the Initiative group Gay Games Amsterdam 1998-2023 in the live talk show Rainbow City Talks: Let’s Talk about Sport. How do we ensure a safe LGBTI+ sport climate? What do LGBTI+ visibility, acceptance and safety mean? And more importantly: how is it experienced?

Journalist and TV presenter Barbara Barend is the host of the Congress Rainbow Cities 2022.

Rainbow cities

Rainbow cities are municipalities actively working for emancipation, safety and social acceptance of lesbian, gay, bi+, transgender and intersex people.

Movisie has been implementing the Rainbow Cities programme for years, commissioned by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science.

Movisie advises and supports municipalities in rainbow policy, develops knowledge products and publications and organises knowledge exchange. We do this in close cooperation with local (LGBTI+) organisations, social professionals and many others.


You can now register for the Rainbow Cities Congress 2022. When registering, you will be asked to indicate your 1st and 2nd preference for your participation in the workshops and sessions. Participation in the congress is free of charge.
