LGBT+ refugees: An overview of law and procedure

Allan Briddock of the UK Lesbian & Gay Immigration Group has written an overview of the law and procedure relating to people claiming asylum on the basis of a well-founded fear of persecution due to their sexual orientation or gender identity. It gives the historical background and looks at the changes over time. It discusses difficulties people have had ‘proving’ their gender identity or sexual orientation, and the changing expectation for asylum seekers to be “discreet”.

The recognition of refugees based on sexual orientation and gender identity in the UK: an overview of law and procedure is available from the Birbeck Law Review.
