ONLINE ONLY: “Free To Be Me”, Refugee stories from Lesbian Immigration Support

At Five Leaves Bookshop


Free to be Me, edited by Jane Traies, is a collection of refugee stories from the Manchester-based Lesbian Immigration Support Group. Tonight, Jane will be joined by women from LISG and the equivalent Nottingham group, Kairos.

The book is a new collection of interviews with lesbian and bi women seeking asylum in the UK, and the campaigners working with them. Here in their own words are their stories of love, trauma, struggle and friendship, courage and solidarity.

Free to be Me is available to buy from our webshop.

For more information on the support services provided by Nottingham Kairos, please call or email: 07938 556788, [email protected] and for Greater Manchester,  [email protected] or telephone 07503 351922.
