In English - Helsinki Pride -yhteisö ry

In English

We support the well-being of LHBTIQ+ asulym seekers or people with a refugee background.

Helsinki Pride -yhteisö (in English, Helsinki Pride Community) is a non-governmental organization that aims for a society of equality and individual welfare that includes everyone regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. Helsinki Pride -Community organizes peer supportive group meetings for sexual and gender minorities, counseling and training on lgbtiq*-issues. Helsinki Pride Community is based in Helsinki and operates in the Uusimaa area.

 

Together With Pride is a peer supportive community for lgbtiq*-people that are seeking an asylum in Finland or have a refugee background.  The aim is to support well-being, strengthen social networks and offer information about rights and services in Finland. You may have just arrived or already stayed here for a while.

 

Together With Pride activities are for lgbtiq*-people over 18 years old. In the meetings we speak English and most of the times have volunteers to assist Arabic speakers.
