Talitha Nollen (33) is a communications expert and board member of GayRotterdam.nl, the online LGBTQi+ platform for Rotterdam and the region.

Lives: With daughter Jule (2) in Delfshaven. My Turkish bakery, the daily walk from bridge to bridge, watching football at Café de Ooievaar: this district is a bustling melting pot of cultures, day and night. There’s no reason for me to ever leave.

Out of the closet: I fell in love with a woman I met on the Stadhuisplein ten years ago. I like to contribute to the pink community. By paying attention to our differences, I hope that we will eventually be treated as equals.

Question 1 of 6

For raw creativity, I go to the Keilewerf

Old harbour warehouses are now occupied by artists like Joep van Lieshout with his AVL Mundo art centre and, if you walk a little further, you can buy fresh cow’s milk at the floating farm. This piece of raw Rotterdam still has an abundance of ​​possibilities. For me, being in the middle of the harbours between the cargo ships is the ultimate holiday feeling; at Zandbar, I can put my feet in the sand and enjoy a beer, at Bitter you can eat and dance, and if it gets out of hand, I can crawl home.

Out and about with my date, any tips?
