Gay Asylum Discriminated in SA – PASSOP

A study by PASSOP finds that gay asylum seekers struggle to find work and battle homophobic discrimination in SA

A study by the People Against Suffering Oppression and Poverty (PASSOP), has found that gay African asylum seekers struggle to find work and battle homophobic discrimination in South Africa, the continent's only nation to allow same-sex marriage.

Interviews with 25 Africans by PASSOP found that 90 percent were jobless and that nearly all felt unsafe because of their sexuality or gender identity despite having fled their own countries to escape being targeted.

The organisation further states that, “There seems to be a lingering gap between the dreams and expectation that fuelled refugees' journeys to South Africa and the lived experiences that they have encountered here."
