LGBTI+ Høringsrække – Høring 2: LGBTI+ Flygtninge

LGBTI+ Høringsrække – Høring 2: LGBTI+ Flygtninge
In this consultation, we dive into the experiences of LGBTI + people in the asylum system. As an LGBTI + asylum seeker in Denmark, you may find in the asylum procedure's interviews that questions are asked about intimate details about gender, body and sexual experiences. You may experience homophobic interpretation, and you may find that you are considered unreliable if you have children from e.g. forced marriage. In the form of personal stories, workshops and professional perspectives, you are invited to insight into and experience the challenges of the current interview procedure. From here, we discuss what opportunities there are to develop the procedure to meet the situations and narratives of LGBTI + asylum seekers. You must remember to register for the hearing via the ticket link if you want to participate. ---------- This is the second consultation in a series of 4, where 7 LGBTI + organizations have joined forces to focus on current challenges for LGBTI + people in the run-up to World Pride and Eurogames 2021 in Copenhagen and Malmö 12.-22. August. Briefly about the consultation series: Meet leading experts, civil society organizations and elected representatives in four different hearings that shed light on LGBTI + conditions in primary and lower secondary school, the asylum system, family policy and foreign / development policy, respectively. The hearings are arranged by LGBT Asylum, Sabaah, Copenhagen Pride, Copenhagen 2021, Intersex Denmark, LGBT + Youth and LGBT + Denmark. Overview of the hearings: - 1 March - LGBTI + students (online) - 19 April - LGBTI + refugees - 31 May - LGBTI + families - 28 June - LGBTI + in Danish Foreign Policy All hearings will take place at 14-17. Hopefully, hearings 2-4 can take place in the Common Hall at Christiansborg, if Covid-19 development allows it. We follow developments closely.
