LGBT Asylum Support is a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) founded in 2015. The purpose of the organisation is to provide support for LGBTI-refugees in the Netherlands. Sandro Kortekaas founded LGBT Asylum Support as a response to the prohibition of ‘propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations’ by the Russian parliament. In collaboration with fellow LGBTI-organisations, LGBT Asylum Support provides support to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender -and Intersex refugees throughout the asylum procedure. The organisation serves both as a guide and a safety net for LGBTI-refugees.
The treatment of LGBTI refugees is the subject of a heated societal and political debate . As a communication volunteer, you speak on behalf of LGBT Asylum Support.
