/ World Wide Wave / Europe / GERMANY: NO LONGER A REFUGE FOR REFUGEES

 

Last week, a story was broke of two refugees who escaped homophobic persecution in Serbia only to be viciously bashed in a German refugee camp. Just weeks after celebrating LGBTI progress in Germany with the passage of marriage equality, tonight we bring you the ugly side of being an LGBTI refugee in Germany.

  • What happened in a refugee camp that landed a gay couple in a serious condition in hospital?
  • How is the rise of right wing parties affecting refugee policy?
  • Will it get any better for LGBTI refugees in Germany?

For an insight into the delicate world of refugee advocacy, we hear from:

  • Javid Nabiyev (CAVID NAB-EE-YEV) is president of Nefes LGBT Azerbaijan and Ambassador for Queer Refugees Leipzig
  • And Anna from Queer Refugees Network in Leipzig, Germany
