This, the home page of this important section of the information resource provides below the section specific topic pages list, and towards the page’ end a sample list of news articles on the Hostile Environment anti-LGBT phenomenon.  However at many points throughout the rest of the different main sections of the information resource, LGBT stories and experiences appear, as LGBTs seem whether in the Tribunal or at the hands of ECOs and UKVI Caseworkers, to have been particularly important as human victims of almost the full range of processes of abuses of power & process that characterise the Hostile Environment.
