Wed, 11 Apr 2018

On 9th April 2018, S Chelvan, of No5 Barristers’ Chambers, drew on his personal experiences as a first-generation migrant, black gay man and legal professional in the Asylum area, to speak at the Bloomberg Community partners LGBT +, Ally and Pan-Asian communities event ‘The LGBT + refugees in the UK’. The event, which was attended by both internal and external guests of Blooomberg, covered the shocking disparity in treatment of LGBT+ people in different jurisdictions across the globe. Paul Ferguson, EMEA General Counsel, passed comment on the talk as ‘a unique and well delivered presentation of enormous relevance to the Department and we will work with Chelvan to see what ongoing assistance we can provide'.
