We’re waiting for a new Petitions Committee

Petitions had to stop because of the recent general election. Once a new Petitions Committee is set up by the House of Commons, petitions will start again.

Closed petition No Pride in Deportation: Stop the Deportation of LGBTIQ+ People Seeking Asylum

End the harmful practice of deporting or otherwise removing LGBTIQ+ people seeking asylum in the UK, seeking alternative solutions that do not put people at risk of harm.

No-one who is an LGBTIQ+ person should be sent to Rwanda or another third country, or deported.

More details

Deportation can inflict severe psychological trauma and increase the risk of harm to people seeking asylum. Deportation holds an even greater risk for LGBTIQ+ people seeking asylum, as such individuals often flee their home countries to escape persecution and violence due to their sexual orientation or gender identity. Deporting them back to these hostile environments can risk condemning them to continued suffering, exile, physical harm, emotional trauma, abuse, isolation, torture and death.
