Event Details

Gay rights are celebrating historic victories in the U.S. But in Africa, LGBT people are being disowned by their families and violently chased away because they are gay. Many seek refuge in America, but never get the chance.

To find out what’s slowing the resettlement of Africa’s LGBT refugees, we’ll dive into the world of US immigration policy, of federal funding, and of American gay rights activism to discover what’s preventing more LGBT African refugees from coming here, who’s to blame, and how to fix it.
