Canada has already said that they would accept over 25,000 Syrian refugees by the end of Feb. 2016, and now the country said that would give priority to families, women, and LGBT people. Controversially, though, the country has said that they will not accept single young men. The exception, young gay men.

“The government is aware that gays could be persecuted, and therefore plans to include them in the selection process aimed at rescuing some of the region’s most vulnerable refugees,” the Ottawa Citizen wrote.
