Rainbow Refugees Stories tells the stories of 27 LGBT* refugees who are persecuted in their home countries because of their sexual orientation or identity.
The majority of them are waiting to be informed whether they are allowed to stay in Germany or have to return to where they meet with rejection. Their lives are shaped by experiences of violence, oppression and disappointment, but also by hope, new encounters and new beginnings.
Together with photographers and journalists, the mentoring programme of the Presseclub München e.V., and the mentors of Rainbow Refugees Munich the project aims to provide the refugees with an opportunity to tell their stories and to have their say in a society where they are otherwise rarely heard.
