About me

I’m Verena and I like to talk and write about the things that bother me. Inequalities, hate and fear bother me a lot. Just like my life in Berlin, this website is in English and auf Deutsch, depending on the context. I always like to hear what other people have to say and think about the world and I’d love to hear from you! These days I spend most of my time running Transnational Queer Underground. It’s a lot of communication, editing, decision making, project developement and also some accounting. Sometimes it’s hard, because there’s so many heartbreaking stories out there and people are far from being safe. Most of the time I wouldn’t want to do anything else. I’m also a professional webdesigner and would like to support more projects and groups that need help setting up their own websites. I have my own company that is called Waterbear Mediendesign. I named it that way, because waterbears are resilient as f*** and we can all use a bit more of that.
