This resource group helps binational LGBT couples navigate the legal, social, emotional and geographical hurdles they face every day.
Love Exiles was born out of real-life experiences of men and women from all walks of life, from countries around the world with a common goal:
to love and live and build a life together with their partners legally and securely.
Couples’ first-hand experiences are a tremendous source of practical and logistical knowledge. An extensive network of individuals, couples, families, professionals, colleagues and organizations around the world help those who seek assistance from Love Exiles.
To help with the change we need to be able to be with our partners, Love Exiles encourages and supports LGBT binational couples to powerfully advocate for change by sharing their stories with the media, friends, colleagues, family, strangers.
They have been doing this work from The Netherlands since 2002. Today there are Love Exiles online communities in Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.
Karin and I met with Martha and Lin McDevitt-Pugh in California, while they were on vacation, to interview them for Torn Apart: United by Love, Divided by Law. We first met them in Washington, D.C. in June, 2009, when we attended the history-making U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on UAFA, Uniting American Families Act.
