The UK Lesbian & Gay Immigration Group (UKLGIG) promotes equality and dignity for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex (LGBTI) people who seek asylum in the UK, or who wish to immigrate here to be with their same-sex partner.

We provide support services for LGBTI people seeking asylum, such as peer support groups, one-to-one support sessions, pro bono legal advice and referrals to specialist lawyers. We also visit LGBTI asylum seekers held in detention. We provide information and pro bono legal advice on same sex partner immigration via monthly meetings with volunteer lawyers and an online forum.

We seek to improve the quality of Home Office decision–making in LGBTI asylum claims and ensure LGBTI people are treated equally and with dignity throughout the asylum process. We also work to to highlight the plight of LGBTI persons in individual countries where persecution persists.

We provide training and information on LGBTI asylum issues to relevant service providers in the refugee and LGBTI community, solicitors and other legal advisers, Home Office staff and the judiciary.
