On June 20, the world observes World Refugee Day in recognition of those who have fled their countries in search of safe heaven. ORAM – Organization for Refuge, Asylum & Migration – have provided this Video, to pay tribute to refugees who are too often ignored – those escaping persecution because they are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or intersex (LGBTI).
In honor of World Refugee Day, ORAM is proud to present a groundbreaking publication and documentary series uncovering profound exclusion and disturbing protection gaps affecting refugees and asylum seekers who are sexually and gender nonconforming.
LGBTI refugees and asylum seekers offer intensely powerful testimony in the ORAM documentary No Place for Me. View a 10 minute preview:
ORAM is the leading global advocate for refugees fleeing persecution based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
