The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugee in Ankara has accepted three Iranian gay refugees into their resettlement program. This means they will find a new safe home, most likely in Canada which is home to Iranian Railroad for Queer Refugees (IRQR), the Canadian based group which made the announcement.

IRQR supports the many Iranian gay refugees who flee to Turkey.

The three are Ali, 31 years-old, Ahmad, 30 years-old, and Farhad, 25 years-old.
