Happy News — Our Russian Man Was Granted Asylum

Russian Asylum Seeker at Pride

Our 29-Year-Old Asylum Seeker (now an Asylee!) marched in the 2014 Pride Parade

Good news from the immigration court today!

The 29-year-old gay man who fled his home in Siberia because he was persecuted for his sexual orientation was told at 1 pm today  that he has been granted asylum.  He will be able to stay in the United States, work, and obtain a Green Card a year from today.

Congratulations to him!

Thank you to his pro bono attorneys, too!

We are very happy.
