Cocktail Nijmegen organises meetings for LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) refugees and asylumseekers. Every second Tuesday of each month, there is a meeting at the Pink House. It’s a meeting in which you can meet other LGBT asylumseekers and get to know more about the Dutch (LGBT) community.
Cocktail Nijmegen wants to help reduce the isolation that LGBT Refugees and Asylumseekers are confronted with. Fleeing a country in which you are not safe being LGBT, and ending up in an AZC surrounded by the same people you were fleeing from, is making life not particularly easy.
