LGBTQI asylum-seekers are refused on unlawful grounds

A new judicial investigation from RFSL shows that LGBTQI asylum-seekers are refused on unlawful grounds. Asylum seekers are expected to conceal their LGBTQI identity, trans people’s asylum claims are missed and legal uncertainty is wide-spread in LGBTQI asylum cases.

For Members

Are you an LGBTQ person who are seeking asylum, are newly arrived in Sweden or have had your asylum application refused? Welcome!


RFSL can offer support or counselling to LGBTQI people in asylum related issues.


Here we have gathered facts and some of the most commonly asked questions about the asylum process.


Many who come in contact with Newcomers need help with everything from legal counselling to getting their basic needs satisfied.

Other organisations

Here we have gathered useful links to organisations, networks and websites working with LGBTQI- and/or refugee issues.
