LGBTQ Asylum Seekers Face Layered Marginalization, So These Four Organizations Are Here to Help

LGBTQ asylum seekers face a unique set of problems coming to the United States, often from places where gender expression and sexuality are strictly regulated. Four organizations across the US, Mexico, and Canada are filling this unique niche.

All four aim to validate LGBTQ asylum seekers and keep them safe.
