'They separated us. We tried to say no, we applied for asylum as a couple. They say we don’t have any civil evidence that we are a couple. And we’re like “how can we show you any civil evidence if homosexuality is forbidden in my country?”'
Read by performers, This Is Who I Am interweaves first hand accounts of LGBTQIA+ peoples experiences of the UK asylum process.
The reading will be followed by a Q&A discussion panel, and a couple of short talks from charities working with refugees in Nottingham.
This is part of a campaign week by UoN STAR to raise awareness of refugees and asylum seekers. The campaign we are raising awareness for is 'Families together', to bring refugee children and families together.
