QUEER FACES MIGRANT VOICES is a German-Dutch cooperation project for 
young lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans * and/or intersex (LGBTI *) refugees 
who have recently come to Germany or the Netherlands. Many of them have 
fled discrimination, war or lack of prospects and have decided to leave 
their homes to find a better life elsewhere. The project is for those 
who question their sexual identity, sometimes because of education, 
sometimes because of religious or other reasons. In addition to this 
inner disruption, they are confronted with a completely new environment: 
a new country, a different language, different customs and habits. Thus 
young LGBTI refugees in particular are exposed to an identity crisis in 
two ways and often question themselves and/or their surroundings.

The project gives these people the space and voice to deal with their 
cultural, sexual and religious identity. Coaches help participants with 
technical and personal questions: Where is my home? Is this the land I 
was born in but had to flee, or is this new land my home? What role do I 
play, what is my origin? What power do I have over my future? These 
questions become stories that bring participants together in a narrative
