RainboWelcome project: Our advocacy work for LGBTIQ+ refugees rights

The RainboWelcome project


How to improve the reception conditions for LGBTQI+ refugees? How to fight against the intersectionality of discrimination they face? And how to build a more inclusive society for people forced to flee their country on account of their sexual orientation or gender identity?

We are honoured to present the #RainboWelcome project, which we have been working on for several months now!

This large-scale European project in partnership with four other organisations aims to:

– Identify the legal procedures and concrete processes for the reception of LGBTQI+ refugees;

– Identify the strengths and weaknesses of responses to their specific needs;

– Equip the structures involved with the necessary tools for the reception and orientation of these people;

– Raise awareness of the situation of LGBTQI+ refugees;

– Advocate their rights and needs to the EU.
