Victims of LGBTQIA+phobia
LGBTQIA+ people are regularly victims of discriminations at work, at school, in their family or in the street. We endeavour to support victims of discriminations. If the victim would like to file a police report, we can also accompany them.
Our association has began accompanying transgender people in their transition : be it social, administrative or medical. Even if the law provide measures to permit transitions, we recognize that these measures are insufficient and sometimes complicated, which is why we accompany people with these steps. We can also accompany the people around them.

Discriminations on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity also exist outside of France. Throughout the world, LGBTQIA+ people are marginalized, especially in certain countries where this discrimination can cost them their lives. Our association offers an accompaniment for LGBTQIA+ immigrants where wa can support them with their emotional distress, the culture and language transition, insertion into society... Our activists who are seeking asylum can also highlight their engagement in the association in their request for asylum. A request for asylum permits them to obtain refugee status and to stay in France without the risk of being sent back to a country in which their life may be in danger.
The accompaniment of immigrants brings a large cultural and linguistic diversity to our association. We have accompanied people from Angola, Cameroon, Gambia, Georgia, Guinea, Nigeria, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Russia, Senegal, Chad, Togo, Belarus, Gabon, Ivory Coast and Sierra Leone.
