Queer for Queer


Queer for Queer is a UK registered charity with international reach through online programmes and activities. We exist to support one of the most marginalised groups in the world: LGBTQIA+ (queer) migrants, asylum seekers and refugees and we do this by:

  • providing business creation courses;
  • delivering skill-enhancing masterclasses; and
  • having a platform where queer and ally organisations worldwide can post online job openings with the intention that these jobs are taken by queer migrants, asylum seekers and refugees.


Once these individuals create their own income flows (either through their own businesses or work for other organisations), they are empowered to change their social positions, improve safety levels and be less dependent on outside support.

We hope that our work will significantly improve the livelihoods and life quality of queer migrants, asylum seekers and refugees regardless of whether they are still in their home countries, transit locations or destination countries.

Our services are also available to all other migrants, asylum seekers and refugees, and other individuals (queer or not) who find themselves economically and/or socially disadvantaged or facing other barriers to finding employment.


Queer for Queer is led by people with lived experiences (queers and/or migrants/asylum seekers/refugees). We are using those experiences to create a new circle of queer care by bringing successful professionals and queer (and ally) organisations to provide education, skill improvement and employment for queers in disadvantaged positions.

Once their positions have improved, they are encouraged to continue being a part of our circle of queer care by sharing knowledge and offering employment to those still in challenging situations.

By sharing their lived experiences of life’s hardship and subsequent professional successes, these previously disadvantaged individuals become heroes, inspirations and beacons of hope for those who are still disadvantaged.
