Expectations of you in LGBT Asylum
As a member of LGBT Asylum, it is expected that you respect the group and the other members.
LGBT Asylum is a safe space for everyone, so we do not tolerate sexism, homophobia, transphobia, racism or any other kind of discrimination or hate.
Also, we do not talk to outsiders about what we do in the group or who is present at the meetings.
Likewise, we do not take pictures of each other without consent. We furthermore expect that you take responsibility for the group.
We are all volunteers, and everyone is expected to help out with the practical stuff like cooking and representing the group.
We expect you to take responsibility for your own asylum case and your own situation.
Our counselling is founded on the idea of empowerment and that you are the best expert on your own life. That means that we try to help you help yourself. We offer counselling so that you yourself can make qualified decisions.
If you are an LGBT+ refugee
The group is for LGBT refugees who want a network with other LGBT+ persons facing some of the same situations and issues related to being LGBT+ and refugee.
The members of the group can share experiences and support each other regarding LGBT+ related issues, issues related to living in exile or practical matters related to for example social services, housing, employment or education.
The group is a space for support and empowerment, and for having a good time.
All LGBT+ refugees with residence in Denmark are welcome in the group. The meetings are held in Copenhagen.
