The International Rescue Committee, together with 36 organisations, calls on Greek authorities for urgent action to resolve the mistreatment of LGBTQI+ asylum seekers in Greece.

People with diverse sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and sex characteristics seeking asylum in Greece face insecurity, inadequate shelter, lack of appropriate support and a hostile asylum system.

In our joint open letter we sound the alarm on the the obstacles LGBTQI+ asylum seekers face in Greece.

By housing LGBTQI+ and non-LGBTQI+ persons together, Greece is failing to provide appropriate reception conditions.
