Queer Migrants 

Description

Objectives

Objectives:
• Provide professionals of the social and employment sector with actual information regarding the complex issues encountered by the LGBTQI community, special when it comes to people with migrant backgrounds.
• Educate personnel on the detrimental effect xenophobic or homo-transphobic discrimination has not only on the LGBTQI migrants but also on our community as a whole.
• Equip professionals with appropriate educational tools and material in order to be able to identify/prevent discrimination incidents and provide support to victimised individuals.
• Minimise incidents of physical and emotional harassment towards LGBTQI migrants in asylum and detention centres, resettlement centres, refugee shelters and camps, as well as
• local community.
• Decrease LGBTQI migrants’/refugees’ insecurity to disclose their LGBTQI identity out of fear of discrimination.
• Ensure a fulfilling future for older adult LGBTQI migrants, the majority of whom have lived through a lifetime of social and legal rejection as well as continuous victimisation displaying noteworthy resilience.
• Eradicate minority stress faced by the long-stigmatised LGBTQI migrant/refugee group, which has concrete negative impacts on their well-being, often leading to self-hatred, poor mental and physical health, higher rates of substances abuse or suicide attempts.
