Video: 'Guilty of Being Gay'

Source: Australian Refugee Film Festival

NB: This film is not new - it was made in 2008 - but has only just been uploaded to the Internet by the Australian Refugee Film Festival. It features interviews with lawyers and activists. It also interviews a lesbian woman seeking asylum from Sierra Leone whose family pursued her through four African countries as well as Moses Kayiza from Uganda and an activist who supported him who explains the difficulties involved in Moses telling his story, which involved torture and sexual violence. Although much has changed because of the July 2010 Supreme Court decision, much has not. The film talks about the cruelty involved in being given five years 'leave to remain'.
