They are still looking for 5 people from/in Austria interested in participating in the study.

    You can find more information on the Liberating Survey website, where you can register to get access to the study.

    Participants will receive €40. Please don’t forget to mention MiGaY as the organisation from which you’ve heard about this in the registration form; this way, you will also support us. Additionally, you can decide to donate 10 % or more of the €40 directly to MiGaY.

  • Translators needed

    30 August 2016

    Speech bubbles

    This post has been updated several times to reflect updates regarding which languages are still needed etc.

    At MiGaY, one of our goals is to provide important information for everyone in the queer migrant community. We would like to make this information available to as many people as possible, which is why we are looking for motivated people who want to translate (not only) for the queer migrant community in Austria.Ideally, we’re looking for people who have a background in transcultural communication and translation and who are also part of the queer community themselves or engage with it, but of course we are happy to hear from anyone who’s interested!
