Sehaq Queer Refugees Group is a refugee-led collective that raises awareness, hosts community events and creates safer spaces for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans* and queer (LGBTQ) asylum seekers, refugees and undocumented people in the Netherlands, and which centers the experiences of refugees from the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) regions. 

Sehaq means ‘dykeness’ in Arabic, a reclaimed slur used to insult lesbians. Adopting a leftist feminist approach to politics, Sehaq also aspires to create solidarity networks between the Dutch-based queer and trans refugee/diaspora community and the (activist) communities in the global South/MENA.
