South Korea Grants Asylum

Absolutely fantastic news for human rights from South Korea: Court grants Ugandan lesbian refugee status after family killed due to her sexuality

A 27-year-old Ugandan woman has become the first person to be granted refugee status in South Korea due to their sexuality.

The woman, who can not be named for legal reasons told a court that she feared for her life after her family members were killed by neighbours because she is a lesbian.

We're sorry, what was that President Museveni? No discrimination against, killing of, or marginalisation of gay people in Uganda? Wake up.
