IT is obvious that things are a changing in the Indian society… and that too in hitherto smaller or Tier 2 cities. But for Ahmedabad to have the first immigrant to Canada on basis of lesbian conjugal partner visa is indeed an amazing revelation!
Sexual preference helped a 29-year-old woman from the city secure a permanent resident (PR) visa to Canada. The lesbian woman migrated earlier this week after she was sponsored by her girlfriend in Canada, who declared her as conjugal partner.
“She is probably the first first-ever lesbian from the country to immigrate to Canada as a conjugal partner,” immigration consultant Lalit Advani, who assisted the girl in securing the resident visa, told TOI.
Changes made to immigration regulations in June 2005 allow Canadians to sponsor someone of the same sex as a common-law or conjugal partner.
