Guiding principles:

  • Nothing grows by itself: We promote Munich's gay community The Sub e.V. defines itself as part of the gay community in Munich. The gay community consists of the diverse offers of gay men and for gay men (commercial as well as non-commercial) and is also a space of encounter, of togetherness and togetherness, of discussion as well as of celebration, of mutual responsibility and of political action for acceptance and respect. Sub e.V. actively shapes the development of this community through networking and political action and represents gay interests to the outside world.
  • No Romeo likes to be alone: We promote social relationships Successful and secure social relationships with other gay men are often the prerequisite for being able to advance one's own personal development and the course of one's coming out in a good way. Sub e.V. is committed to ensuring that both in its own premises and in the gay community of Munich, value is placed on friendly, solidary and respectful interaction with one another. The human being is understood as a multi-layered being, which must not be reduced to individual characteristics such as age, appearance, purchasing power etc.. The Sub e.V. offers space and offers to counteract the isolation and loneliness among gay men and promotes cross-generational encounters.
  • The mixture makes it: We promote diversity The Sub e.V. is committed to an image of humanity that sees the difference and diversity of people as enrichment. The association is also committed in its political work to ensuring that gay men are perceived and valued as part of a colourful and diverse urban society. This applies especially to the acceptance of different groups within the gay community.
  • For the lust for life: We promote health and solidarity Health is more than the absence of disease. Health means a comprehensive physical, mental and social well-being. Since the behaviour of the individual and the circumstances in which they live influence each other, it is important to oppose all forms of exclusion, ostracism and discrimination. This includes the promotion of solidarity within the gay community and in society, especially solidarity with people living with HIV and AIDS. One of the aims of the work of Sub e.V. is the promotion of health among gay men. It is achieved through: Information and education about health risks prevention offers against HIV and AIDS

To this end, the association offers space for encounters and networking and thus the opportunity to exchange ideas, develop common interests and implement them. The Sub e.V. takes a stand when gay men are hindered in their participation in social life.
  • With heart and mind in form: We promote the cultural participation of gay men in our society We promote the cultural participation of gay men in our society In its offers and projects, the Sub e.V. creates the possibility that the lives of gay men, their wishes and desires, their experiences and their history, their desire and their fear can find expression in different cultural and artistic forms.
