I want to be free - Newcomers Youth Report

"I want to be free" is a new report from RFSL Ungdom's project Newcomers Youth. In the report, nine LGBTQI youth with experience of seeking asylum in Sweden are interviewed and they provide their insights into the Swedish asylum system.

I want to be free: Words that we often hear from our members. Freedom from oppression and freedom to just be. These are multifaceted and significant words. They are about the inner journey and the feeling of accepting yourself and finding a community where you can be safe, and at the same time, about the freedom and space to be who you are and who you want to be. They are also about the asylum process - about the bureaucracy and all within it, which is hard to understand. Many times unjust. That which conditions freedom, but never the right to it. In the report "I want to be free" RFSL Ungdom's project Newcomers Youth has interviewed nine LGBTQI youth with experience of seeking asylum in Sweden about their insights into the Swedish asylum system. The report also contains a legal review of asylum cases concerning this target group.

Newcomers Youth is RFSL Ungdom's project for children and young people who are asylum seekers, newly arrived or undocumented people in Sweden. We have existed since 2016 and the activities include social meeting places, lectures, creative workshops, annual summer camps, counseling and legal advice.
