New Stonewall guide on LGB asylum in the UK

Stonewall's report last year 'No going back: Lesbian and gay people and the asylum system' revealed that many LGBT asylum seekers are not granted protection because of fundamental errors of judgement and presumptions made by UK Border Agency (UKBA) staff and judges about sexual orientation.

They have just published a guide, 'Asylum and Humanitarian Protection for lesbian, gay and bisexual people', written by City University Law School and sponsored by the Big Lottery Fund and Herbert Smith, which they hope will help those who work with asylum seekers to more fully understand the asylum process for claims based on sexual orientation.
