Chapter Four engages with the everyday geographies of asylum-seekers who participate in the church refugee program. I argue that the imperative to “prove” LGBTQ identity renders asylum-seekers precarious queers, regardless of “true” identity. Thus the church’s approach to the program, which prioritizes vulnerability over identity, proffers a radical intervention.
