International Subgroup Coordinator: Katie Becker
The International Subgroup’s aim is to campaign and improve LGBT rights across the world.
We have been working with a Kenyan LGBT organisation by offering support and raising awareness of the issues they face.
Asylum for LGBT people
Our Friends from Stonewall have a great resource about the asylum process.
All LGBT+ asylum seekers are refugees are welcome to attend our events and groups. If you are struggling to attend our events and groups owing to finances we can offer some money through our hardship fund.
Human Rights Defender Befrienders
Our co-chair Kevin Sell is looking to become a Human Rights Befriender at the University of York’s Applied Centre for Human Rights. We have worked with this organisation throughout the year and have had guest speakers from Bulgaria.
We are looking to expand our international work for more befrienders if you are interested contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details
We have written to the Russian Embassy about the discriminatory laws against LGBT people in Russia.
Holocaust Memorial Day
We support Holocaust Memorial Day in York and sit on the steering committee and will be looking at historical persecution of LGBT people and ways to address the persecution of LGBT people today.
