PODCAST: Protecting Human Rights: Sexuality, Gender Identity and Asylum in the UK
The LSESU Student Action for Refugees Society (STAR)
in conjunction with
the UK Lesbian and Gay Immigration Group (UKLGIG),
with support from the LSE Annual Fund
Protecting Human Rights: Sexuality, Gender Identity and Asylum in the UK
The aim of this one-day conference is:
To highlight situations of persecution from which LGBTI people seek protection.
To explore how the UK Asylum system accounts for the claims of LGBTI individuals.
To examine the ways in which these issues have been framed.
There will be key speakers, group workshops and personal testimony themed around issues to do with homelessness, detention, trauma, law, religion and categorisation of sexuality. We will be regularly updating this website over the next couple of weeks with more details of speakers, workshops and a programme for the day.
