My friend Krijn a.k.a. Karoline Online, the best and most popular drag artist (travesteit in Dutch) in Amsterdam, had been trying for a year to open up a private personal bank account at one of the largest Dutch banks. But INGbank has refused - they consider her profession like that of criminals and sexworkers. So, what did she do? Karoline contacted one of the biggest Dutch dailies - Telegraaf - to tell her story (Dutch).
And word is spreading about the discriminatory practice of the bank. Read it in Dutch here and here.
