"I want to live without fear"

My friend, the artist Babi Badalov was deported back to to Azerbaijan by Jacqui Smith a few months back. After going into hiding in Baku for a while, Babi fled to St Petersburg.

As Russia is still a deeply homophobic country, he feared for his safety and entered the EU, making it to Paris where he now lives. Quickly finding support he made this video - activists all around Europe are aware of him and his case.

He has again applied for asylum and I really just hope that France will be more civilised towards him that the UK was.

Babi posts on LGBT asylum news
