Austria has rejected the asylum claim of an Iraqi who claimed he could not return home because he is gay, saying he acted too ‘girlish’ in his assessment interview, reports said Thursday. The case follows that of an Afghan asylum-seeker whose claim to be gay was rejected because he did not ‘act or dress’ like a homosexual. In the most recent case to be made public, authorities in Styria state found that the Iraqi could not be believed because the 27-year-old displayed a ‘stereotypical, in any case excessive ‘girlish’ behavior (expressions, gestures)’, which seemed fake, the Kurier daily reported.
