City of Sanctuary Bolton as part of Bolton Pride 2018 Fringe presents:

"This Is Who I Am" - Ice & Fire Theatre Company


"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?”


First-hand accounts of LGBT+ people seeking asylum in the UK about their experiences in their own country and on arrival in the UK, addressing the particular challenges they face. Read by members of the Actors For Human Rights Network.

“The monologues simply but powerfully illustrate the pain, hurdles and humiliation they encounter and are given an unadorned reading… the accounts speak for themselves and allow a light to be shone on the plight of a particular group of refugees that are ignored or met with incomprehension or minimisation of what they go through.”
