…means ”new day”, ”morning”, and ”new beginning”. Sabaah is a community working for the rights of LGBT+ people with minority ethnic backgrounds.
About the organization
Sabaah was founded in 2006 by a group of ambitious young people who wanted to create an association to support minority ethnic LGBT+ people in Denmark.
Our wish was to invoke a sense of community and solidarity amongst us by creating a social network to support and guide people through the personal and social challenges they face navigating the world as ethnic, sexual, and/or gender minority members. Many of us are religious and proud of our cultural backgrounds but sometimes struggle to unite this with our sexual orientations and/or gender identities. The issues our target group deals with are often related to identity, coming out, religion, loneliness, family conflicts, relationships, and the LGBT+ community.
In Sabaah we are mindful of the special needs of, and the effort it takes to successfully support, this specific double-minority group. Sabaah works to achieve this by informing, counseling, and nourishing our social network. As discretion and security are essential to our target group, regular activities like our women’s cafe take place at a secret location.
We strive to get young minority ethnic people involved in Sabaah’s organizational work to strengthen their ability to organize, plan, coordinate, and share responsibility. We wish to develop their knowledge of and experience with the democratic workings of an association.
Sabaah offers counseling aimed at minority ethnic people facing issues related to gender and/or sexuality. Counseling is open every thursday from 18.00 – 20.00.If you feel like talking to someone who can relate to your situation, give us a call at: 3323 2000 or send us an e-mail: email@example.com
