For #HumanRightsDay, spread the word: #LGBTIrefugees deserve our protection. Safe haven for everyone! via ORAMrefugee
The ad campaign launched today comprises three portraits of refugees, featuring the most popular Google search terms related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex refugees. The results powerfully highlight the persistent exclusion and challenges LGBTI refugees encounter every day on their flight to safety.
ORAM founder and Executive Director Neil Grungras says, “In the fight for civil and human rights, and during the HIV/AIDS crisis, LGBTI people and their allies stepped forward to speak up and help out. When our Russian, Ugandan, Honduran sisters and brothers run for their lives, we must step forward again to make sure they find safe haven. We hope people will be inspired to support ORAM’s work to advocate for LGBTI refugees around the world.”
