LGBT+ Helpline

Reporting service for homophobic and transphobic violence and advisory service for all LGBT+ issues


Titelbild LGBT+Helpline


  • Reporting service: In Switzerland, data on homophobic and transphobic violence is not collected. In the eyes of the police, state authorities and politicians, if there is no data, it is as if to say this violence never took place. Yet we do know that there are victims of homophobic and transphobic violence in Switzerland. That’s why, in 2016, the LGBT+ Helpline began to catalogue all such cases reported to it via the online form, by telephone, during face-to-face sessions or by e-mail.

  • Advice: LGBT+ Helpline advisors are volunteers. They are of varying ages and backgrounds, with craftspeople, office workers, lawyers, doctors, psychologists, social workers and students among our team. They themselves are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender individuals who have reflected on their own sexual identities and have experience in the LGBT+ field. Our advisors are on hand to answer your questions or suggest who you can approach for specific needs.
