Gay artists faces deportation after asylum claim is rejected

An openly gay artist could face torture after his claim for asylum has was dismissed by the Home Office.
Babakhan Badalov (Babi) from Azerbaijan arrived in the UK in 2006 after being repressed and persecuted in his home country.
Azerbaijan legalised homosexuality in 2000.
However, the Muslim country is still a very conservative society and homosexuality remains an extremely taboo subject.

Full Story

the asylum route these days is becoming more tedious than before it seems, many Jamaicans for example in the UK are having some hurdles in proving their status as abused homosexuals for example one person was rejected asylum on the grounds that he was not “campy” enough, he was said to be “too masculine” to be gay. Anyway for those who have been successful congrats, for those who are intending to apply just follow the guidelines set, there are no guarantees.
