Rainbow Migration

Founded in 1993, Rainbow Migration (formerly the UK Lesbian and Gay Immigration Group (UKLGIG)) supports lesbians, gay men and transgender people to gain fair and equal treatment under UK immigration law. It supports gay asylum seekers through the legal process, and provides them with emotional support through its telephone helpline and regular meetings. UKLGIG also campaigns to change the way the UK Border Agency deals with asylum claims from LGBT people.
