Huffington Post explains LGBT asylum seekers and refugees
The Huffington Post has an important story Sunday by Becki Young and Ruth Young, “Welcoming the Most Vulnerable: LGBTI Refugees”, link here.
The article does explain that asylum seekers usually are not refugees and don’t have the formal social services that refugees receive. It also explains that some LGBT refugees are settled in rural areas where they do have social services but little practical social support. There are some detailed case studies in the article.
