Gay partner immigration (18th Feb. 2009)

The Gay & Lesbian Immigration Task Force, better known as GLITF, provides assistance to gay & lesbian Australian/overseas partners where one partner needs to apply for Permanent Residency in order to live with his or her partner here in Australia. (

Every couple of years or so, Orange Ribbon invites GLITF back again (a) to remind newer listeners about the work and services of GLITF, and (b) to outline any recent legislative changes that may have changed the rules by which your overseas partner can apply for Permanent Residency.

So... it is time to catch up with GLITF again. If you are in a relationship with an overseas partner, or you have friends in that situation, then make sure you listen in to Orange Ribbon this week for the latest details. And you can send in your questions (ONLY while the program is actually going "live" to air... i.e. 7:00-8:00pm Wednesday) by emailing or SMS 0427 JOY 949.

Also in this program, we will be chatting with Hans and Lantry about their relationship, and the immigration process they are currently going through. Hans already lives in Australia, and Lantry is American and hopes to gain his PR early next year. And we will hear a little about this transcontinental love story that is holding the two of them together.

So... if you just have a casual interest in gay & lesbian partner immigration, or you have a direct and current interest in this topic, listen in to Orange Ribbon this coming Wednesday, 18th February, at 7:00pm, this week with Allan and Ka Fam as your presenters.
