Welcome to the Rainbow Web Portal!

A child has been born intersex and you’d like to know more about the topic? How can you support somebody close to you who is coming out? How can you change your name and gender on documents so that they match your gender identity? And where can you get advice on any of these or other issues?

The pages of this website offer information on topics relating to diversity of sexual orientation and gender in everyday life.

This website has been created for everyone who is interested in these topics. We hope it can offer extra support to lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, and intersex people, as well as their friends and relatives. The information we offer should also be useful for people whose work involves engaging with people of diverse gender identities and sexual orientations.

Our English language pages include about 30 fact sheets covering a variety of topics. This content is currently being revised and is therefore temporarily unavailable.

By clicking on "Angebote" on the main page of the German website you can find information about drop-in centres, advice and counselling, educational and leisure activities, self-help groups and advocacy groups spread across the whole of Germany. Some of these are available in English. You can use the search tool to find available support services in English.

We welcome you to use the Rainbow Web Portal for information and guidance on everything relating to diversity of sexual orientation and gender in everyday life.

We look forward to receiving your feedback and comments, which can be sent in either German or English via e-mail to info[at]regenbogenportal.de.
