LGBTQI + Migrants: A Systematic Review and Conceptual Framework of Health, Safety and Wellbeing during Migration

International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health

13 January 2022

A systematic review examining the health risks and consequences that LGBTQI+ migrants face during transit, and use and access to services. We describe daily discrimination and double marginalisation faced, and use a framework to analyse pathways to poor health. LGBTQI+ migrants have received minimal attention in migration discourse, and we highlight the need for greater recognition of the serious neglect and important concerns of these individuals, who need better support and acceptance to be able to advocate for themselves while in transit.
