The @DeptJusticeIRL will pay travel costs for asylum seekers to attend #Pride as if they don't ask them to prove sexual orientation 🙄 If only you read half of the rejection letters for LGBT+ asylum seekers you'd understand why this is pathetic
Not so long ago we were contacted by a solicitor representing an asylum seeker whose sexual orientation was questioned by both the IPO and appeal tribunal. The solicitor asked us to write a letter confirming the applicant's participation in our LGBT+ activities.
Established NGOs and other LGBT+ groups regularly write such letters, normalising this dehumanising practice. All of them ought to and must condemn the practice. They should be demanding change in the way the @DeptJusticeIRL treats LGBT+ asylum seekers not facilitating abuse
We'll encourage people to get the money and go to #PrideAlternative
