Worldwide people are discriminated against because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. In some places, they face imprisonment and / or the death penalty - such as in Iran.

The ongoing persecution, torture and executions not only give the dissidents, but also homosexuals right opportunity to leave their own country and to seek protection abroad.

The situation of refugees and homosexuals in Turkey in Greece and Cyprus.

Worldwide people are discriminated against because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. In some places, they face imprisonment and / or the death penalty - such as in Iran.

The ongoing persecution, torture and executions not only give the dissidents, but also homosexuals right opportunity to leave their own country and to seek protection abroad.

We have been reporting for some time about the massive human rights violations in many countries around the world. Our human rights organization "CODE e.V." for years observed the intolerable violation of human rights and the situation of refugees in Turkey, Cyprus, and Greece.
The unreasonable condition has deteriorated in recent years.

In particular, gay asylum seekers are humiliated and discriminated against because of their sexual orientation in these countries. The asylum applications are not processed in accordance with the European law, and the fundamental procedural protections are not guaranteed.

We call on the countries responsible to take immediate measures to put an unhesitating end to this misery! We call for Iranian gay asylum seekers to better medical care and decent accommodation for asylum seekers in total, as they have no prospects, as long as they go through the asylum process in the countries concerned.

These people rely on our support and solidarity. Your signature will help us improve our criticism - in the form of a protest letter to the foreign representatives of these governments - to express.

Thank you for your attention!
