In March 2016 Unicorn Refugees, a group of people from many countries, started meeting once a month. We created a space for ourselves where we can talk about our situation as newcomers to Germany, get information to find our way here and ways of letting our voices be heard.
Usually, English and Arabic are the main languages spoken at the meetings.
Come together! Monthly networking meeting for LGBTTIQ refugees
Meet other lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, transgender, intersexual and queer refugees. You can chat, have a coffee or tea and develop new ideas together. If you are still living in a camp, sometimes the feeling may arise that you are the only one. The long asylum process and German bureaucracy seem overwhelming at times? Don’t worry, you are not alone. Today you can meet others and find a new support network.
Your questions, ideas and suggestions will be at the center of this evening. Bring along your friends!
If you would like to join the group, please contact us and we will inform you about the next dates!
