Support Rainbow Sisters, our support group for LGBT+ women and non-binary individuals.

Rainbow Sisters is a supportive, welcoming and confidential group open to lesbian, bisexual and trans women, and non-binary people seeking asylum.

The group comes together weekly and meets a real need for a safe space for LGBT+ women and individuals to feel supported to understand and celebrate their sexuality and who they are.

It is extremely difficult for LGBT+ people to get a fair hearing from the Home Office, with them often disbelieved or accused of lying.

A member of Rainbow Sisters told us, “I wish the Home Office would not tell us we are lying. You’ve come to accept yourself for yourself, but then you are told you are lying about who you are. They do not know how much that hurts.”

Rainbow Sisters provides vital support and solidarity for LGBT+ women and individuals through the tedious and draining asylum process, providing hope, love and family.

Support the Rainbow Sisters and show your solidarity with LGBT+ women and non-binary individuals seeking safety in the UK.

Everyone deserves to live in safety as their true self.

Before joining Rainbow Sisters, I could hardly open my mouth to tell anyone about my sexuality. Now I will shout it from the rooftops. I have become free.
