Do you come here often? Please support this website!

Dear readers,

During the past few weeks you may have read stories on LGBT Asylum News from, amongst other countries, Venezuela, Malawi, Kenya, Ireland, Qatar, Iran, Bahrain, Morocco, Mexico, Sierra Leone, Russia, Nigeria, Bahamas and Uganda. You could have read about developments for asylum seekers and refugees in Europe, France, Italy, USA, Sweden, the UK, South Africa, Scotland, Canada, Poland, Japan, Wales, Ukraine and Australia. And you may have seen original stories from a number of contributors.

Our content is read by thousands of people like you every week and as you may have noticed our stories regularly appear elsewhere, both on blogs and in mainstream outlets. This month, one of our stories on homophobia in Nigeria's football federation sparked an international campaign. And we do a lot of work behind the scenes, offering advice and help. Apparently we are:
"An important, valuable source for news and information on LGBT refugee issues; reporting on the plight of LGBT people in the 'global south,' which other news and asylum outlets have frequently neglected." - says Peter Tatchell.
We also work behind the scenes helping individuals directly or through referral and other help. People like Robert Segwanyi and, currently, David Mugwera.

Surprise! Producing this "valuable" website does come with a cost — so if you like what we do, often come back to read what we post, or make use of our content, please consider making a donation, large or small. It all helps keep LGBT Asylum News going.

You can do this via PayPal*, to account or you can make a direct payment to Halifax Bank of Scotland, sort code: 111431 account #: 00105866

All donation support gratefully received!
