In this episode, we talk about the application process at the Migration Agency and the importance of having a public counsel. As an LGBTQI asylum seeker, you will be asked to give information that proves that you belong to the LGBTQI community or that you are perceived to belong to it. Typically, you will be expected to have experienced an inner process leading up to the acceptance of your LGBTQI identity. This approach is deeply problematic since it presupposes that all LGBTQI people share a universal experience of an emotional process with a clear beginning and end.
