This research entitled ‘Pathways between LGBTQ migration, social isolation & distress: liberation, care and loneliness’ was a collaboration between academics at the University of Brighton’s Centre for Transforming Gender and Sexuality, and MindOut LGBTQ mental health charity. It involved in-depth interviews with MindOut service-users who had relocated to Brighton internationally and from within the UK.

The project aimed to understand how LGBTQ people’s migratory journeys and experiences of loneliness and isolation, as well as belonging, contributed to their mental health in Brighton. We used creative methods, like map-making and drawing, to help people capture their journeys and experiences.

This event will give an overview of the research findings, and provide the opportunity to discuss LGBTQ newcomers’ experiences of Brighton and Hove in the context of mental health, and to consider ways forward.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
