We know the stats. Being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender is illegal in almost 80 countries, and in at least five of them is still punishable by death.
But do we know the stories? Do we know what it means to fight for the right to be who you are and to live a life free of fear as an LGBTQ refugee? Do we know the sacrifices involved in starting a new life and the vital role that community can play in supporting those who manage to escape?
Do we know how we can help? Our International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia breakfast is an opportunity to join 500 of us who are invested in supporting LGBTQ individuals to live their authentic lives without fear.
Do you want to develop your understanding, language and skills to better support LGBTQ folk in your work or personal life?
