‘Then they separated us.  We tried to say no, we applied for asylum as a couple.  They say we don’t have any civil evidence that we are a couple.  And we’re like – how can we show you any civil evidence if homosexuality is forbidden in my country?’

This Is Who I Am interweaves three first-hand accounts of LGBT+ people seeking asylum in Britain, their experiences in their own country, and on arrival in Britain, addressing the particular challenges they face.  Read by members of the Actors For Human Rights network, an outreach project run by ice&fire, followed by a Q&A discussion.

ice & fire are a company exploring human rights stories through performance.  They put human rights at the core of everything they do to make accessible theatre for a wide range of audiences across the UK.

Suitable for 16+
