If you are outside the United States and looking for asylum: While we are not legal experts, we are aware that some countries do offer political asylum to those whose life and freedom are threatened due to their sexual orientation. Canada in particular is known for taking in LGBTQIA+ refugees. Here is a link to their country’s information on seeking asylum: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/refugees/index.asp. It is our understanding that in order to apply for asylum you must either make your way to Canada (NOT by crossing the Canada-United States border), or you need to go to a Canadian embassy OUTSIDE of your home country to apply. Of course, we cannot guarantee that they will be able to offer you asylum but it makes sense to try if you wish.    

There are also organizations here in the United States and elsewhere in the world that exist to help LGBTIA+ people internationally:
