The municipal elections of 19 March 2014 are important for all residents of the municipality. Young and old, big and small, gay and straight. With that in mind, COC Haaglanden and DWH Delft are organizing a political debate on Thursday 13 March.

From 20.00 p.m., candidate councilors of the Zoetermeer political parties will discuss in Stadhuis, Markt 10, Zoetermeer. Almost all participating political parties are present, in a number of cases with the party leader.

About 10% of the population is lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT). In Zoetermeer this concerns almost 12.000 people. Their position is legally protected in the Netherlands. However, this does not mean that the social acceptance of homosexuality keeps pace with this legal anchoring.

The debate will focus on the themes of education, security, the elderly, transgenders and sport. Of course we look at the LGBT points in the Zoetermeer election programs or the lack thereof.

For the first time, the public can ask questions to one or more of the politicians via Twitter before or during the debate. For this, #pinkdebate used.

Anyone who would like to hear what the political parties of Zoetermeer think about education in schools, care for the elderly LGBT or combating discrimination in sport is very welcome. Admission to the debate is free. The hall is open from 19.30 pm.
