LGBTQ Immigrants of Long Island
LGBT Immigrants of Long Island creates a safe space for LGBT immigrants and allies to express themselves and to engage in discussions about issues relevant to the myriad intersecting identities of this community in Nassau and Suffolk counties. We discuss topics such as online dating safety, sexual and mental health, and other implicated questions of access to health and legal services, particularly for undocumented LGBT immigrants.
We believe that a key part of our work is to foster community by not only building these safe spaces for discussions about issues that affect LGBT communities, but also by cultivating genuine friendships with one another and creating an environment where we can all express ourselves openly and respectfully.
