  1. I have established a Rescue Fund to help persecuted LGBT Africans escape from their countries, as well as supporting safe housing, and quests for asylum.
    I was born in Kenya

    • I learned at a young age about the Holocaust and scapegoating and the importance of Jews in the Diaspora to help others escape persecution. As a member of the global LGBT community I could not sit back and ignore the plea for help generated by my writing, from Africa’s LGBTI community.The letters I have received will break your heart and they are numerous.
    While the US has made strides in equality for LGBT people, African countries such as Uganda and Nigeria have passed Draconian legislation, that has served to increase persecution against gays, lesbians, bisexual, transgender and intersex people.

    By way of example, in Uganda, LGBTI people are being arrested, taunted, paraded in front of press, outed in tabloids, seized and assaulted in incidence of mob (in)justice, and all this after being rejected, ostracized by family, friends and Government alike. The LGBT community in Uganda are terrified and have nowhere to turn, as President Museveni has now poised signed the Anti-Homosexuality Bill that will put many in prison for life.

    This is URGENT~

    The stories of rejection by parents, family and friends, the arrests under these laws and resulting assaults, insidious mob justice are horrendous. Many fear for their lives:

    • By contributing to this Rescue Fund you will help more gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex people from Africa escape terrifying persecution. For some, this is a matter of life or death.
    What We Need
    We need to raise as much as possible – there will be many more people to help as time goes by. The more we raise, the more we can do. This is how the funds will be used:

    I have a growing list of over 30 people who have been verified and need to escape from Uganda, Nigeria, Cameroon, Gambia and other countries. 100% of the funds raised will be used for fees for passports, visas, transport out of the countries, and safe shelter and food, pending, in some instances, escape:
    $100 pays for passport
    $200 pays for a visa
    $350 provides food and shelter for a month in Africa pending escape
    $800 - $1,600 buys an air ticket

    Legal fees - pro bono/ accommodation donated.

    At this time there is not a single USA organization addressing this problem of direct funding to help victims of the new law and the subsequent tabloid outings which have put people at even greater risk.

    Please write to me if you have specific questions you would like answered.

    Unfortunately without air tickets and visas, some people have escaped across borders. This is not ideal as those people are usually placed in UNHCR refugee camps where they are further degraded and abused by other refugees, It can take over 18 months for resettlement. Often the nightmare continues....
