LGBTIQ asylum seekers, refugees and migrants

As the only country in Africa that provides constitutional legal protections for LGBTIQ people, South Africa, and Cape Town in particular, are often perceived as safe havens for LGBTIQ people fleeing persecution in their home countries.  

However, despite greater legal protections, prevalent homophobia and transphobia both within South African and migrant communities, combined with xenophobia towards migrants and refugees can make the journey difficult. Triangle Project offers its services to members of the LGBTIQ community regardless of citizenship, nationality or refugee status.  We also have good working relationships with our friends at PASSOP and Scalabrini Centre, which provide dedicated services to migrants and refugees.
