African Rainbow Family is very humbled to have been able to put together a successful first ever LGBTIQ refugee conference in the UK that calls for end to ‘vile’ proof of sexuality policy with the generosity of The New Beginnings Fund thus:
- Conference marks 50 years since landmark of homosexuality law reform
- Refugee speakers will explore ongoing plight of LGBT asylum seekers in UK
- Call for Home Office to drop ‘proof of sexuality’ policy
We are proud to say that our Part of History conference event poster has since 21st June 2017, been added to items displayed till date in the People’s History Museum Manchester for visitors to view and learn from. This would eventually be archived for future reference following the Museum’s archiving procedures. Following the conference, our branch in Birmingham has been experiencing increased referrals too and now looking to have a new branch in other part of the UK.
Report of our conference is available here , video coverage of the day is available here and also at the video section of our Facebook.
African Rainbow Family would like to say a huge thank you to all our guest speakers, panelists, group members, volunteers, conference delegates, friends and funder that made the conference possible.
Using this opportunity to watch out for our next Annual Conference 2018 coming soon!
