Fundraiser for LGBT Transition Houses, Kenya
October 13, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm£7.50
Transition Houses are temporary, safe places for LGBT refugees in Kenya. They provide training, transport, help with finding work/relocation, or reconcilliation with families and communities back home. While LGBT people can still face 14 years in prison for their sexuality, Kenya is seen as a safer country than many in East Africa.
Come and join York LGBT Forum and Time to be Out s for a very special fundraising evening including:
Hear about the LGBT situation in Africa from an LGBT woman from Zimbabwe who has recently gone through the asylum process in the UK
Learn about the work of Amnesty LGBTI UK
Watch a powerful video about the experiences of a lesbian in Kenya – hopefully we will also have a live Q&A with her and her Transition House colleague in Kenya via Skype!
Listen to fabulous live music from a local performer
Meet the Time to be Out York team who are working on the ground to change the lives of LGBT asylum seekers in the North of England
There will also be loads of FREE nibbles, a cash bar and a raffle – this is a fundraising evening after all, so please bring cash and give generously!
