The UK Lesbian & Gay Immigration Group (UKLGIG) supports LGBTQI+ people through the asylum and immigration system. Our vision is a world where there is equality, dignity, respect and safety for all people in the expression of their sexual or gender identity.
We provide psychosocial and emotional support for LGBTQI+ people seeking asylum to help improve their confidence and self-esteem and reduce isolation. We also provide legal information and advice. In addition, we campaign for improved treatment of people seeking asylum.
Our asylum related activities include:
Research & policy: working to ensure LGBTQI+ people are treated fairly and with dignity in the asylum and immigration system. See publications for examples of our work.
Training & information: providing training and information on LGBTQI+ asylum issues.
