Newcomers Stockholm

Newcomers is a network within RFSL for asylum seekers, undocumented and newly arrived LGBTQI people in Sweden. Our members come from many different parts of the world and have often fled persecution in their former home country due to sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. Newcomers work for strengthened rights for asylum seekers and newly arrived LGBTQI people.

Newcomers Stockholm is a member group at RFSL Stockholm and a social meeting place. As a new person in Sweden, you can make contacts and meet others with similar experiences to your own. You can also participate in various activities and receive health information and legal advice.

Check out Newcomers Activity Project for more information about activities. To participate in our activities you have to be a member of RFSL Stockholm.
