We, all Dutch, warm welcome all LGBT asylum seekers who flee to our country
In Iran declared as homosexual by his own family to the police which will lead to death penalty. Here in the Netherlands IND is not regarding him as credible because he does not know the names of the men grindr. IND ... grow up! Stop this expansion!
Ascertain:
• That IND thinks in some cases in stereotype behavior to determine about the sexuality of gays which is not permitted by law.
• Moreover, it is not correct that the criteria used to reject an asylum applicationis based on lak of names in case of dates via Grindr.
• That IND apparently still assumes that heterosexuality is the norm and that homosexuality must be proven.

Requests
Therefore we ask the Secretary of State to make the IND clear that if an LGBT asylum seeker alongside photos and documents from the country of origin for demonstrating sexual identity, other proof as partners - with or without the name - a worldwide social network for LGBT as Grindr may bring as evidence. And also not heterosexuality but diversity should be the norm.

Discrimination, harassment or sexual assault should in all cases be reported. Even in case of discrimination the police must take action. You can also decide to report discrimination or harassment through our report form. This can be also anonymous. Or by discrimination-reporting offices in your area. Reporting makes sense and especially when it happened repeatedly. In this way, the scale of discrimination is visible and targeted actions can be taken.
