By raising awareness among young people in heteronormative youth venues and at events with their own campaigns and specific programs, prejudice and discrimination against LGBT+ people are reduced and exchange is promoted. All offers are scientifically based and are divided into four subject areas. In addition to specialists in social work and psychology, around 40 young LGBT+ volunteers are involved in all these areas. du-bist-du enables and promotes the participation of young volunteers on various levels.
