LGBTI Refugees Factsheet

LGBTI people are at risk of persecution due to their sexual orientation and / or gender identity. While this persecution is not a new phenomenon, UNHCR reports that there has been an increase in the number of asylum claims made on these grounds in the last few years. The New South Wales Refugee Health Service has produced a fact sheet outlining some key points for service providers and some useful contacts for those working in New South Wales.
