  1. How does one ‘prove’ that one is gay in these situations? Give someone a blowie? Knowledge of Judy Garland films?

    1. That’s the question we have asked many times when we have seen articles like this, it really is ridiculous isn’t it?

  2. Thank goodness this case has been dropped and he allowed to remain here in safety!

    Good luck to him

    I wish him every good fortune and welcome him to the UK. For once, the Home Office did the right thing for a change.

  4. Well done after a long fight Tacko;. Welcome and I hope you have a great & successful life in GB.

    One day, perhaps not to far in the furture, lgbt people will be fully free in Africa etc also. Keep on campaigning.

  5. clearly home office is riddled with institutional homophobia, not much better then the turkish army that request gay people to prove their homosexuality by providing photos showing them engaged in compromising sexual acts
