UKLGIG (UK Lesbian & Gay Immigration Group)

The UK Lesbian & Gay Immigration Group (UKLGIG) promotes equality and dignity for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and intersex (LGBTQI+) people who seek asylum in the UK, or who wish to come here to be with their same-sex partner.

Since 2003, the focus of the group has been on assisting those who seek refuge in the UK from countries where LGBTI people are persecuted, as well as supporting LGBT activists who are working to change the attitudes and legislation in their home countries.

Supporting LGBT asylum seekers: providing emotional support & legal information referring to solicitors; visiting detention centres and running other social support projects.

Research & Policy: working to ensure LGBTQI+ people are treated equally and with dignity in the asylum process; seeking to improve the quality of Home Office decision making and seeking an end to the detention of LGBTQI+ people.

Training & Information: providing training and information on LGBTQI+ asylum issues.

Please note that UKLGIG can ONLY respond to your asylum queries if you are already in the UK.
