RFSL Newcomers is a network for and with asylum seekers, undocumented immigrants and newly arrived LGBTQ people in Sweden. Our members come from all parts of the world and have often fled persecution in their native country because of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. Above is a movie where RFSL’s asylum lawyers, among others, give some advice on what to think about when you want to seek asylum as an LGBTIQ person.
Many who come in contact with Newcomers need help with everything from legal counselling to getting their basic needs satisfied.
Here we have gathered facts and some of the most commonly asked questions about the asylum process.
Here we have briefly gathered overall information about the different steps of the asylum process and relevant legislation.
RFSL can offer support or counselling to LGBTQI people in asylum related issues.
Here we have gathered useful links to organisations, networks and websites working with LGBTQI- and/or refugee issues.
RFSL provides support to LGBTQ asylum-seeking people through the Newcomers network, but needs are ever-increasing and we are dependent on donations from our friends.
Newcomers is a nationwide network with groups at most RFSL branches across Sweden, from Boden to Malmö!
