The criminalisation and persecution of people who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Intersex is happening right now in 72 countries across the world,  and has led to many fleeing for their lives and seeking sanctuary , particularly from those countries which still have the death sentence, if convicted.

The Pride Without Borders group in Leicester says, “For those who have fled their countries of origin due to persecution because of being LGBT, this is how Freedom tastes…  to be who you are: no death threats, no persecution but who you are is what matters!!”
