Intercom is proud to be setting up a new self-help support group for LGBT+ asylum seekers and refugees ("ASR"). The first meeting will be in Exeter on Monday 26th September (2pm - 4pm). The group is to support people who have fled their country of origin in fear of their lives just because of their sexual orientation or gender identity, and the group will be meeting on a monthly basis.

Over 70 countries have laws criminalising same sex acts, 5 of them threaten LGBT+ people with the death penalty. Because of this, many people come to the UK to claim asylum, so that they can be who they are without the fear of violence, prison or death. However, we know that many LGBT+ asylum seekers and refugees are living in isolation.

The aim of this group is to be a warm welcoming and friendly place where people can get support and be themselves without fear. So please share this news with anybody that you feel might benefit from such a group. We have a small fund for paying travel costs.
