Less rainbow-friendly parts of the world come to Cork LGBT+ Pride!

LGBT Ireland facilitates a monthly peer support group for LGBT+ people seeking international protection in Ireland. The group is called “Is Rainbow Muid, We Are Rainbow”.
Ireland is a leading country in the world for those seeking international protection on grounds of their sexual orientation and gender identity.
· 11 countries in the world still execute LGBT+ people*
· 57 countries impose prison sentences of up to 8years-life imprisonment*
· In many more countries it is the cultural law which trumps any state protection*
