Trans asylum seekers leave their home countries because they are in serious danger. On their journey to Europe, they often risk their lives. On entering the country and asking for asylum, they can face violence and harassment from immigration authorities or the police. In time, they learn about the harsh reality of being an asylum seeker in Europe. The present document was produced with the greatest care, but does not claim to be complete.
