“Immigration Equality is a national organization fighting for equality under U.S. immigration law for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and HIV-positive individuals. Founded in 1994 as the Lesbian and Gay Immigration Rights Task Force, we have grown to a membership of 10,000 people in cities all over the country. We are run by a Board of Directors and have full-time staff in our National Headquarters in New York. Immigration Equality is funded by donations from our members as well as generous support from private foundations.” – Immigration Equality
Immigration Equality can evaluate your case for possible pro bono (free, volunteer-assisted) representation.
Immigration Equality has helped hundreds of individuals win safe haven in the United States. You can call their office at 212-714-2904 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a free consultation or discuss your case over the phone or via email. If you cannot afford an attorney and if they feel your case is strong enough, they will find a free pro bono attorney to represent you in your asylum application.
Additionally, if you can afford an attorney, they can give you a list of names of LGBT and HIV-friendly private immigration attorneys. Finding the right lawyer is one of the most important things you can do to find a way to stay in the United States legally.
There are few areas of U.S. law which are as complicated and which change as frequently as immigration law. Even experienced immigration attorneys may be unfamiliar with or insensitive to the unique issues of discrimination which confront the LGBT and HIV-positive immigrant communities. Immigration Equality is always available to give you information about the immigration law. You can call or email them with any questions you may have.

I pass on “their” valuable information because I believe them to be the best is service with regards to immigration issues affecting LGBT communities.
