"Arriving differently - Understanding diversity"
The project is aimed at lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex and queer refugees and provides information on LGBTQI* life realities in various languages on this website. You can find multilingual information providing an overview of various sexual orientations and gender identities, on topics such as coming out, health, advocacy and therapy, as well as the topic of language mediation in advising LGBTQI* persons.
The project is also aimed at interpreters and psychosocial and therapeutic specialists, as well as voluntary and full-time helpers of refugees or migrants: Many LGBTQI* refugees experience particular exclusion in their countries of origin and while fleeing; some are traumatized. They also experience multiple discrimination here in Germany and need special protection. In order to meet their needs and adequately support LGBTQI* persons who have a refugee background, specified knowledge, an appreciative approach and sensitive language are required.
We offer workshops and advice:
- In order to learn and better understand the diversity of sexual orientation and gender identity, or be able to transmit it more appropriately
- In order to find out more about the situation and needs of LGBTQI* refugees and migrants
- In order to work out concrete options for action together in practice
- To answer your questions.
