It is essential for LGBT asylum seekers to get advice from solicitors experienced in this area of law. Your solicitor should understand the issues faced by people claiming asylum on the basis of their sexual orientation and gender identity. The following groups can help you locate legal advice:
A charity promoting equality and dignity for lesbian, gay, bi, trans and intersex (LGBTI) people who seek asylum in the UK, or who wish to immigrate here to be with their same-sex partner.
A charity dedicated to helping LGBT people who may have fled their country due to persecution for their sexual orientation or gender identity.
