As a counselling center, we offer help to gay and bisexual men, trans* and inter* people, people living with HIV/Aids and their relatives or partners. All services are confidential.

Over the last thirty years we have become a highly professional and skilled team of doctors, educators, health scientists, pedagogues, psychologists, psychotherapists, social scientists and social workers, administrators, as well as many volunteers and freelancers. Some of us have a migration or refugee background.

We can provide services in many languages such as Arabic, English, French, Greek, Polish, Slovak, Spanish, Czech, Russian or Turkish. Even if your language is not listed above, we will always strive to find a suitable interpreter. We are here to help those seeking advice, counselling and long or short term support.

We offer 1-on-1 and / or group counselling in all matters regarding:


Mental health

You need help or information?

We are gay men ourselves and will answer your questions on site or help you find adequate help. ( i.e. doctors, lawyers, language courses, therapists etc.)

Your information will be kept confidential and not be shared with anybody.

We speak English, Arabic, German, Spanish and some French. With the help of volunteers, we will try to support you in many other languages as well.

You can also meet other queer refugees for exchange and mutual support.

We are looking forward to meeting you!
