For Pride season, we have come together with Micro Rainbow and Refugee Action to highlight the voices of LGBTQI+ people who have or are seeking refugee status in the UK.

We talked to Michael, from West Africa; Zarith, from Southeast Asia; and Tony, from Africa, three gay men who came to the UK because they weren’t safe back home. They explained  the challenges of going through the asylum system, the Refugee Ban Bill and also asked them to send a message to the Home Secretary.
