Survey: What advice would you give to individuals that are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender and are immigrating?

Posted on December 19, 2009. Filed under: Surveys |

Survey Results: A few weeks ago we ask the question “What advice would you give to individuals that are gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender and are immigrating?”

From M. in Seattle, USA:
Connect with friendly groups in advance, take their advice on where to live and other support services, at least initially until you are familiar with your new area. Find ways to bring your culture along as well…

From W. in Sydney, Australia:
I would let them know that provided they can prove they have been together a certain amount of time they can include their partner on most visas which they could not do until recently.

From B. in Seattle, USA:
If possible know the differences on who gay culture is viewed between your culture of origin and the culture in which you are immigrating and be careful of stereotypes as they can lead you down a wrong path.

From D.S., Location Unknown:
The advice I would offer would have to depend on where they are going and is being gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender a crime in the area your coming from or going to. Know the laws and customs, do not assume anything.

What comments or advice would you give?
