In Wageningen, the Nashville declaration also made a stir. Shout immediately took action and wrote all the churches to see if they were prepared to make a statement together with Shout.

Some churches have raised the rainbow flag, from some other churches we received the notice that they will pay attention internally to the LHBTQ + community.

As icing on the cake, the brand new councillor Mari Saber Pardo of GroenLinks submitted a motion on 14 January to make Wageningen a rainbow municipality. The motion was accepted unanimously!

Yesterday an open letter by SHOUTappeared in the newspaper, thanks to Rinske!

You can read the letter here.

All in all, in Wageningen something good has emerged from the Nashville declaration!
