More about Cocktail 
Cocktail Nijmegen wants to help reduce the isolation that LGBTIQ+ Refugees and asylum seekers are confronted with. Fleeing a country in which you are not safe being LGBTIQ+, and ending up in an AZC surrounded by the same people you were fleeing from is making life not particularly easy. We want to introduce LGBTIQ+ asylum seekers to eachother, to the Dutch society and to the LGBTIQ+ community. In this way we try to improve the social climate for LGBTIQ+ asylum seekers and make them feel less isolated. More information:

This program is funded by gemeente Nijmegen, Stichting Roze Woensdag & Stichting Vierdaagsefeesten.
