Learning Exchange Held to Discuss Helping LGBTQ+ Asylum Seekers

Outhouse was the location for a meeting of organisations, groups and activists involved in helping those seeking asylum across Europe.

Following on from the launch of the report Far from Home: Life as an LGBT Migrant in Ireland, the learning exchange was organised by the NXFLGBT IrelandQueer Diaspora and Outhouse.

The day was divided into two sections; the first a conversation between the attendees of the problems and issues that arise for LGBTQ+ asylum seekers, and possible ways to address them. The second was an introduction and discussion by representatives of support groups and activists from across Europe who spoke about their own modes of practice and both the unique and universal problems in battling bureaucracy.
