Mike’s desperate plea for Valentine’s Day

Mike’s desperate plea for Valentine’s Day

It's Valentine's Day and we're feeling very romantic here at Gay Star News, but Mike’s story put a bit of a damper on our big love fest.

UK citizen Mike Roach has been together with his US boyfriend for two years.

But the 20-year-old from Liverpool was recently denied a tourist visa to visit his partner in Tennessee after his entitlement to a visa waiver expired.

If Mike had been in a straight relationship with an American citizen, he may have had other options.

To voice his frustration, Mike created a petition and made a YouTube clip.

Help Mike so he can celebrate a Valentine’s Day with his loved one and end the US’s discriminative marriage policies.
