About Us

RFSL

RFSL, the Swedish Federation for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Rights is a non-profit organisation that was founded in 1950. RFSL's goal is that LGBTQ people should have the same rights, possibilities and obligations as everybody else in society.

RFSL – The Swedish Federation for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Rights works locally, nationally and internationally and is an ever growing organisation with about 7000 members and 38 branches all over Sweden. RFSL Umeå is a local branch of RFSL which was established on 1972. In Umeå we work with, among others, HIV-prevention, norm-critical lectures/training and Newcomers.

We follow RFSL’s goal that the same rights, opportunities and obligations shall apply to LGBT people as for everyone else in society.

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is the highest decision making body of RFSL Umeå. The board of RFSL Umeå plans and executes activities and makes overall decision on RFSL Umeå’s policies, activities, actions and cooperations according to the instructions from AGM and the bi-laws of RFSL.
