THE CRISIS

Every year, thousands of LGBTQ

immigrants and asylum seekers

come to the U.S. fleeing persecution

in their home countries based on

their sexual orientation or gender

identity. Yet upon arrival in the U.S.,

many LGBTQ asylum seekers don’t

know where it is safe to go for help.

HOW WE HELP

information gap. Our catalog helps LGBTQ

friendly resources near them. LGBTQ asylum

seekers can use our free, online resource

catalog to meet their needs in key areas,

including: housing, legal, food, medical,
