Newcomers is a network for LGBTQ Refugees and LGBTQ Migrants
RFSL Newcomers invites you to a meeting place and a network for LGBTQ refugees and LGBTQ migrants who have fled persecution based on sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. Newcomers is also a network for LGBTQ persons who have just moved to or already live in Sweden because of other reasons.

In the RFSL  Newcomers group, you will meet new friends and get to know the Swedish LGBTQ community. Maybe you can get training in the Swedish language, advice on how to find a job and/or somewhere to stay, as well as were to find health care and how Swedish authorities and institutions operate. The network can, if necessary, also provide contacts with RFSL’s legal advice and arrange counselling.

The group meets regularly at ”Huset”, RFSL Stockholm, Sveavägen 59 in Stockholm.
If you want to get in touch with RFSL Stockholm Newcomers, please send an e-mail to

A very warm welcome!
