Unwanted and Unwelcome? Stories of Bulgarian LGBTI+ migrants

In 2021, I conceptualised and guest edited a feature series for the Bulgarian LGBTI+ portal titled Unwanted and Unwelcome[1]. Its aim was to provide a space for LGBTI+ Bulgarians who live abroad to speak about their experiences with migration, including work, family, community life, successes and challenges, and anything else they wanted to share. This short article presents the rationale behind the series and summarises some of the main conclusions that I drew from the 19 stories we published.
