Two gay men from Bangladesh who offered to have sex before Australian immigration officials to prove their sexuality in order to get refugee status.
CAAH hosts a celebration for two queer Bangladeshi refugees who have just won refugee status. 

in AUSTRALIA, 07/07/2012

After a long battle with the Refugee Review Tribunal who denied they were gay, our two friends got the word last month that the government granted them refugee status.

The couple courageously address the large December 3 marriage equality rally asking for the LGBTI community to support them. CAAH has been instrumental in campaigning for them to be recognized as refugees, with petitions to the Minister and addressing the RRT. It is another win for human and queer rights that this gay couple won against a bigoted and homophobic RRT and Immigration Minister. Come and plan for the next marriage rights rally and celebrate this victory with our friends.
