The Research and Consultancy Unit at Refugee Support, the refugee services arm of Metropolitan Support Trust, has launched its most recent research report Over Not Out: The housing and homelessness issues specific to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender asylum seekers. This groundbreaking research was launched at an event hosted by Baroness Gould at the House of Lords in Westminster on the 12 May 2009.
