LGBTI+ Asylum Support

Out & Proud African LGBTI (OPAL) is a charity supporting LGBTI+ asylum seekers and refugees in the UK, France and the Netherlands.

The founders of this organisation are African queers and human rights advocates based in the UK. Our mission is to see African countries accord human dignity, freedom and justice to, and promote equality for, LGBTI+ persons in Africa.

We also support LGBTI+ asylum seekers and refugees in Europe through hostile asylum procedures, and help those accorded protection as refugees to integrate into their host countries.
