LGBTIQ* (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersexual, queer) people flee from their home countries as they are systematically discriminated and persecuted up to death penalty by their governement or police.
Once they arrive in Germany they may also face violence and attackings through other fellow-refugees.

In these cases our initiative helps them to find a safe place. But as time is of the essence we would need to rent an apartment to have one place in reserve.

Our initiative, the Rainbow Refugees Cologne - Support Group, was founded one year ago and provides several very different services like accompanying refugees to governmental offices, doctors and so on, helping them with all needed paperwork, finding accomodation, also fighting politically or just welcoming them to the native population to socialize. With this we actively help with integration in a new country/society.

We are part of the LSVD, an association for lgbtiq-rights to give the community a heard voice.
