HOOPS AND LOOPS
A space for the LGBT+ asylum seeker/refugee to meet in a safe space with people just like them
Many of us have left our homes because of our sexuality. We come from all around the World, from as far as Cameroon and Bangladesh. We have found a safe space to meet, sharing our stories, obtaining support and helping each other through difficult times.
We have found a shelter in hoops and loops where we meet, socialise, encourage and share.
Hoops and Loops is a Support/Social group for LGBT+ asylum seekers and refugees. They were first set up by Displaced People In Action in 2015 and still has a few founder members in the group awaiting for their asylum decisions.
I am no bird; and no net ensnares me; I am a free
human being with an independent will.
