With the Rainbow Welcome! project, we intend to provide various organisations and professionals with useful guidance to better receive LGBTIQ+ refugees. We produced different tools available in several languages, to everyone and for free:

The study

The study on the legal processes to receive LGBTIQ+ refugees in Europe.


This guide is aimed at all LGBTIQ+ shelters, LGBTIQ+ associations and reception centres for asylum seekers and refugees to improve their reception conditions. This guide is based on a diagnosis of reception problems and a benchmark of good practice, both of which were previously carried out as part of the project. The guide aims to better address the specific needs of LGBTIQ+ asylum seekers and refugees in Europe.



Rainbow welcome aims to train as many as stakeholders to improve how they receive and orientate LGBTIQ+ refugees. The training already took place in the 4 countries of the partnership: France, Belgium, Italy and Spain. The tools developed in the framework of this training can be found in these downloadable toolkits. Feel free to train yourself and your team!

Do you want to participate ?

Any interested LGBTIQ+ shelters, association or refugees’ reception centre located in one of the partners’ countries can contact us.

Rainbow Welcome! visual universe

Rainbow Welcome! visual identity has been developed by Alison Roger France, in collaboration with PLS and all the partners. 

She studied the complexity of sexuality, sexual orientations, genders, gender expressions, identities, sexual characteristics, fluidity between the various spectrums, etc. She also adopted a reflective creation process including refugees’ journey in life and on earth to finally come with those organic forms whose nasting, movements and textures aim at illustrating the multiplicity and complexity of each and all individuals. Of course, the colours of the LGBTIQ+ flag have been used. The whole is wanted to be dynamic, intriguing and … positive. Our message is the one of reception and inclusion, as stated in our motto “Rainbow refugees, WELCOME!”.
