This policy report aims to address the unique needs of a vulnerable population, namely LGBTI refugees, as well as advocate for the protection of universal human rights and equality within a local context. LGBTI individuals fleeing persecution of any kind and by any means deserve equal human rights protections. Achieving this goal will only be attained through greater awareness, enhanced cooperation and well-informed strategies coupled with multi-level policy changes and implementation. Another aim of this report is to provide policy recommendations to facilitate the mainstreaming of more inclusive practices. City governments, NGOs and citizens can also use this information to create more inclusive public policy and take direct action in their cities.
