This document can also be found on the official website of the Heartland Alliance International at: https://www.heartlandalliance.org
This assessment documents the specific vulnerabilities of LGBT individuals affected by the ongoing conflict in Syria. The research team interviewed 60 LGBT Syrian refugees in Lebanon, a small number of straight-identifying refugees, Lebanese host community members from various parts of the country, staff from 16 local and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs), select UNHCR personnel, and staff from Lebanese government institutions and businesses to gather the perspectives of a wide range of stakeholders. The recommendations presented in this report will help diverse stakeholders in Lebanon more effectively respond to the needs of this highly vulnerable community, which for too long has been hidden and underserved.
