LGBT Asylum is a welcoming community in Worcester, MA to support the basic human needs of LGBTQI people seeking asylum in the United States, to provide: housing, food, clothing, resources, cellphones, and transportation. Our goal is to educate the public to change policy around the globe so that no LGBTQI person will need to seek asylum because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
