Network Berne has around 100 members. It was founded in 1997 as the second regional group after Zurich. Traditional events include a hiking weekend, a Saint Nicholas celebration, visits to the UNCUT film events and themed evenings with talks on a variety of subjects.
The Berne regional group's programme is as diverse as its members, ranging from tours of the Paul Klee Centre, the art museum and the Abegg Foundation to readings and a look behind the scenes at the media centre in the parliament building and the Dobiaschofsky auction house.
Network Berne invited the well-known and pioneering sexologist, Martin Dannecker, to give a talk on internet dating. Another talk focused on the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) and its significance for the LGBT community in Switzerland.
The programme also includes regular contact with the WyberNet network and visits to annual Pride events. Networkers often invite other members for a drink at their home or workplace. The annual membership fee means that most events are free.
Network Berne meets for drinks on Tuesdays from 6.30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the centre of Berne. Meetings are sometimes followed by dinner.
