    Britain cannot be the best place to be a refugee, I really doubt that because I live in Britain. As a matter of fact recently there was an incident where the previous Prime Minister called a woman a bigot after she talked disparigingly of immigrants and virtually every major newspaper criticized him for it. The fourth most popular party here wants to end all immigration and ship all people not “pure white” away. America seems more diverse and far more tolerant and even has a black president which is great.

    What is the situation for gay refugees like in the USA?

    @Tallskin: It’s not pretty in the US: about the last claim you want to make in an immigration hearing is that you seek asylum based on sexual orientation. A few cases have been approved, but they are exceptions to the norm.
