Meet the Journalist: Bradley Secker on LGBTI Asylum-Seekers in Europe

Gayropa is a photo-led project about the lives of LGBTI+ asylum seekers and refugees around Europe. Fleeing from those who fled alongside you is often the reality for many LGBTQ+ refugees, asylum seekers, and migrants arriving in Europe. For reasons connected with their sexuality and/or gender identity, many individuals seek political and humanitarian refuge in European countries. This project examines how this minority within a minority is forming a sense of community, challenging stereotypes, and fighting racism and xenophobia simultaneously. Following key individuals across Europe over the course of several months, Bradley Secker documents the plight of those seeking to make a difference in their countries from abroad.
