ORAM Video Honoring World Refugee Day

By Melanie Nathan. June 20, 2013.

Screen Shot 2013-06-19 at 10.51.33 PMOn 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.

Please donate now to support ORAM’s global advocacy, education, and direct assistance programs easing LGBTI refugees’ paths to safe haven.

We are working toward the day when no one will need to flee their home for fear of persecution. Until then, ORAM is a unique organization that will continue to be there to make sure LGBTI refugees are not forgotten.
