‘Then 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?’

Featuring, first-hand accounts of LGBT+ people seeking asylum in the UK and addressing the particular challenges they face. Read by members of the Actors For Human Rights Network, an outreach project run by Ice & Fire.

Ice & Fire explores human rights stories through performance. Putting human rights at the core of everything they do to make accessible theatre for a wide range of audiences across the UK.
