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.
Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre
