Everyone deserves security, dignity, and self-determination

LGBTQ people in Middle East and North Africa (MENA) often face violence, detention, discrimination, and chronic health issues. Transgender people are especially at risk, as are refugees far from their home countries.

Without safe shelter, opportunities for health, education, employment, and migration remain out of the question. LGBTQ activists throughout the region are doing courageous work to support their communities. But their movements are constrained by restrictive societies and laws.

You can be the missing link. Your gift fuels the work of local activists in MENA providing emergency shelter to their LGBTQ community members.

Thank you for your tax-deductible donation!
