If you fled your home country due to persecution, or the risk of persecution, have the right to apply for asylum in Sweden.
Being threatened or persecuted by the state, society in general, or your family, due to your sexual orientation or gender identity, may constitute a ground for right to asylum in Sweden. In many cases, you have the right to a public counsel paid by the state to support you in the asylum process. You can then decide which public counsel you want. We work as public counsels assisting lgbtq asylum applicants in their contacts with the Migration Board, the migration courts, and the European Court of Human Rights.
If you are subject to immigration detention, you have the right to be assisted by a lawyer. We provide legal advice and representation to migrants detained in removal centres and prisons.
Enforcement obstacles to deportation
If your asylum application was rejected, and you have received a decision af removal, there is in some cases possible to claim impediments to removal. In those cases, you might get a new trial. This applies if there are new circumstances in your case that have not been assessed earlier, and that you have not been able to bring up earlier.
What are considered new circumstances vary, but "coming out" as ab LGBTQ individual always are considered a new circumstance. Other factors can be a drastically worsened situations for LGBTQ persons in your home country, if you are wanted by officials, or if you have been subject to media attention.
