UKLGIG Service users’ forum

We shared our dream and aims with service users at the UK Lesbian & Gay Immigration Group. They received it with joy and showed a lot of enthusiasm to support our work. Regardless of some school of thought thinking that black and African gay people are leaving their country for greener pastures abroad, this campaign and the immense support from these asylum seekers shows how much they will like to live in their own country.
