LGBT Asylum support contributes to the well being of new Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender asylum seekers in the Netherlands. We are an independent organization and work exclusively with volunteers. We work closely with other LGBT interest groups and we have contacts with refugee assistance organizations and Dutch authorities.
Sign our petition - Single trip Iran - No way!!
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!
• 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.
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.
