Greetings from LGBTIQ refugees from Kenya (Nairobi and Kakuma). Hope this message finds you well.
We appreciate God for all the blessings of 2017. Although it has been a very difficult year for most of our LGBTI colleagues, there are definitely things to thank God for. We condole with those who have lost loved ones and wish those who are unwell a quick recovery. In the year 2017, our LGBTIQ community has faced enormous difficulties. We witnessed some of the worst forms of crime and insecurity. Gruesome murders of prominent personalities in different parts of the world and of course so many other LGBTI whose sickness went unreported! We also lost formidable refugee colleagues like John Paul and Roger also known as Nana, We pray that their souls rest in peace.
