LGBT Asylum - Case counseling for LGBTQ+ asylum seekers and refugees

Sidst opdateret: 15-11-2021 03:11

LGBT Asylum offers counseling and social networks to you, if you are a LGBTQ+ person and seeking asylum in Denmark.

If you are an LGBT + asylum seeker in Denmark

If you apply for asylum in Denmark, it can be difficult to see through and understand the rules, procedures and law in the asylum system. LGBT Asylum therefore offers advice in your asylum case. If you wish, we can:

  • help you make informed decisions about your case
  • help you understand the asylum procedure
  • help you understand the letters you receive from the Danish authorities
  • advise you before you go for an interview at the Danish Immigration Service or the Refugee Board
  • if possible, join you in connection with conversations and interviews as a co-chair.

If you are an LGBT + refugee in Denmark

As a refugee in Denmark, you can unfortunately experience isolation and loneliness. Some may have difficulty getting used to life in exile, and some may have the consequences of experiencing violent upheavals in their life. That is why LGBT Asylum offers a network, we call LGBT Refugees.

In addition to social events, you can get advice from us.

We can always find someone in our group who, for example, can:

  • advise on municipal relocation
  • provide knowledge on the rights and obligations of the integration programme
  • explain letters from the municipality
  • help report tax
  • talk about how to deal with homophobia in language school or racism in the LGBT + scene.

LGBT Asylum tilbyder rådgivning og socialt netværk til dig, der er LGBT+ person og søger asyl i Danmark.

Hvis du er LGBT+ asylansøger i Danmark

Hvis du søger asyl i Danmark, kan det være vanskeligt at gennemskue og forstå regler, processer og jura i asylsystemet. LGBT Asylum tilbyder derfor rådgivning i din asylsag. Hvis du ønsker det, kan vi:

  • hjælpe dig med at træffe kvalificerede beslutninger om din sag
  • hjælpe dig med at forstå asylproceduren
  • hjælpe dig med at forstå de breve, du modtager fra de danske myndigheder
  • rådgive dig inden du skal til samtaler i Udlændingestyrelsen eller Flygtningenævnet
  • hvis muligt tage med dig til samtaler og interviews som bisidder.

Hvis du er LGBT+ flygtning i Danmark

Som flygtning i Danmark, kan du desværre opleve isolation og ensomhed. Nogle kan have svært ved at vænne sig til tilværelsen i eksil, og nogle kan have følgevirkninger af at have oplevet voldsomme begivenheder og omvæltninger. Derfor tilbyder LGBT Asylum et netværk, vi kalder LGBT Refugees.

Udover sociale arrangementer, kan du få rådgivning hos os.

Vi kan altid finde en i vores gruppe, der eksempelvis kan:

  • rådgive om kommuneflytning
  • give viden om rettigheder og pligter i forbindelse med integrationsprogrammet
  • forklare et brev fra kommunen
  • hjælpe med at indberette skat
  • snakke om, hvordan man håndterer homofobi på sprogskolen eller racisme i LGBT+ miljøet.

Tilbuddet er for dig, som…

 

  • Is an LGBTQ+ asylum seeker or refugee seeking a LGBTQ+ network
  • Seeking guidance and advice in regards to your asylum case
  • Er en LGBTQ+ asylansøger eller flygtning, der søger et LGBTQ+ netværk
  • Søger vejledning og råd i forhold til din asylsag

Vil du være frivillig her?

You can join LGBT Asylum as an asylum activist, refugee, contact person, interpreter/translator or event planner. Our refugees group is our group for LGBT+ refugees who have been granted asylum and residence in Denmark.

  • If you wish to join as an activist and contact person, the requirement is that you yourself are LGBTQ+.

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 counseling 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.
