RFSL Newcomers Malmö


Are you an LGBTQI+ person who just moved to Malmö or Skåne? Or are you an LGBTQI+ asylum seeker or refugee who is in a need of support in the asylum process, or to integrate and navigate your new life in Sweden?

In that case, welcome to RFSL Newcomers Malmö!

RFSL Newcomers Malmö is a project under RFSL Malmö providing community, support, guidance and safe spaces for LGBTQI+ migrants, asylum seekers and refugees who have arrived in Malmö or Skåne.

This project has several main goals:

  1. To provide legal, social, cultural and wellbeing support
  2. To provide support and guidance in integration into Swedish society
  3. To strengthen and develop LGBTQI+ migrant, asylum seeker and refugee competencies and capabilities to enter the Swedish labour market
  4. To provide a network, safe space and community for LGBTQI+ migrants, asylum seekers and refugees in Skåne
  5. To connect the LGBTQI+ Newcomers community with the broader Swedish LGBTQI+ community
  6. To increase public awareness and advocate for LGBTQI+ human rights for asylum seekers and refugees globally

Despite all of us working on the Newcomers project voluntarily, we are in need of your help!

With the rise of populist and anti-immigrant political tendencies across Europe, the current political climate in Sweden has been gradually leading to the attitudes of ignorance, or even worse, the adversity towards the needs of refugees and asylum seekers.

We would like you to become our friend and a distant (or not so distant) member of our diverse community in Malmö. If you wish, you can support us with a donation via Swish number 1235355292 or by scanning the QR code from below.

THANK YOU all so much for any support!
