RFSL Newcomers is a network for LGBTQ asylum-seeking, undocumented, and newly arrived people. Our members come from all parts of the world and have often experienced persecution in their native countries because of their sexual orientation, gender identity and/or gender expression.
Newcomers was created because many asylum-seeking and newly arrived LGBTQ people feel that they are not given proper support or information about their rights when they arrive in Sweden. Newcomers Uppsala is a part of the national Newcomers network initiative by RFSL.
Nationally Newcomers exists in several cities around Sweden at RFSL's local chapters, each offering their own support possibilities. You can read more about the national group on RFSL Newcomers homepage (https://www.rfsl.se/en/organisation/asylum/).
Time and place
The group meets on Tuesdays at 17:00 at the RFSL Uppsala offices.
