There are many reasons why LGBTI individuals immigrate. Could it be oppressive criminal laws? Deprivation of their fundamental human rights? Hope for recognition as a family with all the legal protections and benefits? Or just simply moving to an environment where they can live out their authentic selves? Panellists will take on the various themes interwoven into the lives of LGBTI migrants and the issues they face in crossing borders and settling into a new country.
