The Lesbian & Gay Foundation (LGF) are working in partnership with Refugee Action, The EHRC and 1 North West and are hosting an informal discussion evening around lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGB&T) refugee and asylum seekers on Tuesday 30 November 2010, at the LGF, 5 Richmond Street, Manchester, M1 3HF.
This will include an overview of the current legal implications for LGB&T refugee and asylum seekers, and people who either work with, support or are a member of the LGB&T refugee and asylum seeker community are all welcome.
If you’d like to share your knowledge and experience or you would simply like to get more actively involved; come along from 6.30pm to 8pm for an informal discussion evening. This is also a great opportunity to come along to The LGF and see the wide range of services and support that is available.
Everyone is welcome, but please let us know you’re coming along by either emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0845 3 30 30 30 and speak to Adam or Darren. If you have any specific access or dietary requirements, please let us know in advance.
Look out for the next issue of outnorthwest out on 24 November for a special news feature on LGBT asylum.
