About LGBT Asylum
Denmark is one of the safest and most equal countries for LGBT+ persons. But that is not necessarily the case if you live here as an asylum seeker or refugee, hoping to be safe and live a free life.
LGBT+ persons applying for asylum in Denmark or having a permit to stay as refugees experience solitude, harassment, difficult mental challenges and rejection, due to lack of knowledge about LGBT+ problems.
LGBT Asylum is working to change that.
Since 2012 LGBT Asylum has provided a safe social network, counseling and support to more than 400 LGBT+ refugees and asylum seekers. We cooperate with the Danish authorities and we are doing advocacy. Internationally we cooperate with other LGBT+ organisations.
LGBT Asylum is the only group for LGBT+ asylum seekers and refugees in Denmark. Today we are more than 60 LGBT+ asylum applicants, 75 LGBT+ refugees with a permit to stay and 35 volunteers.
We offer activities in Aarhus and Copenhagen. LGBT Asylums is founded in collaboration with LGBT+ asylum seekers and LGBT+ persons with Danish citizenship.
