In response to The Supreme Court ruling that two gay men from Iran and Cameroon have the right to asylum in the UK, Stonewall Chief Executive Ben Summerskill said:

‘Stonewall welcomes this important ruling. Demanding that lesbian or gay people return home to conceal their sexuality bears no resemblance to the reality of gay life in many countries. We’re delighted that the Government is responding to what we asked of all the political parties in the run-up to the election. Our report No Going Back shows that UK Border Agency staff urgently need better guidance and support to deal with cases involving gay asylum seekers.

We look forward to working with UKBA and ministers on these issues.’
