      Austria has also become somewhat anti-immigrant and xenophobic. This probably isn't as much about LGBT rights as it is about keeping foreigners out of the country.

          You're asking me to get inside the head of an anti-immigration immigration official? :P

              Ditto. We Aussies have got hundreds of asylum seekers locked up on a couple of islands, waiting until they die and stop being problems. :/

    Follow up: https://www.apnews.com/7415a79a5d1242949eb784f899dd0eb8 The official was disciplined following an internal review. Systemic discrimination, or one-off case? Make what of that if you will.
