Help a young Gay Iranian Man leave his country
Organized by: Sonia P
EVENT DATE Apr 13, 2015
Ali* is a talented, resilient and intelligent 25 year old man.
He's also a gentle gay man in Iran who will no doubt be subjected to perfectly legal physical and verbal abuse and probably forced into a government-subsidized sex change operation if we don’t help him escape.
As he approaches the end of his studies he has two choices:
1-remain a man, enter the military service and live in terror of being arrested and even killed if he is found out or
2-accept the sex change operation.
According to a prominent immigration lawyer we contacted : “The young man is in a very complex and dangerous situation.”We have come together as a circle of friends during this very small window of opportunity to help him escape. We may only have a few months.
With your help we can raise enough money to get him out of the country and into a safe country where he can apply for LGBT asylum through the UN. Our goal is to reach $5000 USD. Thanks to this Web site all of your donations will go directly to him.
