BLOG / Newcomer is a network for LGBTQ refugees/migrants

RFSL Stockholm’s Newcomer group invites you to a meeting place and a network for LGBTQ refugees and LGBTQ migrants who have fled persecution based on sexual orientation,gender identity or gender expression. Newcomer is also a network for LGBTQ persons who have just moved to or already live in Sweden because of other reasons.

In the RFSL Stockholm Newcomer group you will meet new friends and get to know the Swedish LGBTQ community. Maybe you can get training in the Swedish language, advice on how to find a job and/or somewhere to stay, as well as were to find health care and how Swedish authorities and institutions operate. The network can, if necessary, also provide contacts with RFSL’s legal advice and arrange counselling.

We meet regularly at ”Huset”, RFSL Stockholm, Sveavägen 59 in Stockholm.
