Niet 'Gay'genoeg live on BNN-VARA

How do you prove that you are gay? Emma van Poorten follows Amin who had to flee his country because of his sexual orientation and hopes for a residence permit here in the Netherlands. But then he must convince the IND of his or her orientation.

So watch BNN-VARA on March 6th at 22:05

An effective political lobbying of LGBT Asylum Support for rejected LGBT asylum seekers finally brings the ineffective work instructions of IND to attention.

After 5 months of campaigning with the petition #NietGayGenoeg, the collected signatures were presented to the permanent parliamentary committee Security and Justice in the House of Representatives on 5 September. On 14 September, a meeting was held with questions to the State Secretary and shortly afterwards LGBT Asylum Support was invited by the D66 group, Maarten Groothuizen.

Never before had a motion of coalition parties in parlement about this subject got so much media attention. All newspapers wrote about it, NOS, Nieuwsuur.

This year LGBT Asylum support not only talks about this with politicians to change the assessment of LGBT asylum seekers by IND, but also with almost all COC Cocktail projects, other LGBT advocacy organizations and lawyers, but especially with the LGBT asylum seekers themselves who are considered unbelievable.

Changes are needed to give LGBT asylum seekers the protection they deserve
