The Nationality and Borders Bill will have a devastating effect on the ability of LGBTQI+ people fleeing persecution to find safety in the UK.

Among other sweeping changes, this Bill will make it even more difficult for LGBTQI+ people to prove their sexual orientation and gender identity by increasing the standard of proof they have to meet.

If the UK is truly committed to being a global leader on LGBT+ human rights, then we must ensure the protection of LGBTQI+ people seeking asylum by keeping the standard of proof as it is. We call on the House of Lords to stop this Bill! Please share this Twitter thread with friends and colleagues using #AntiRefugeeBill.


We will keep campaigning to defend LGBTQI+ asylum in the face of this bill. Please sign up to our newsletter so that we can stay in touch.
